The Off Campus Study Office at Swarthmore has about 300 approved programs. However, if you cannot find the exact program you are looking for, it is possible to petition a program.  A petition application requires written approval by the major(s) advisor, pre-estimation of credit for the courses on the program, approval by the Off-Campus Study Office, and approval by the Off-Campus Study Committee. Your OCS advisor can help you with this process.
