With prior approval from the Chair, a student may take philosophy courses abroad for a semester or year and have them count both toward a major and as part of an Honors Program. Courses abroad do not, however, always fit neatly into a philosophy major and are not always suitable for full course credit. Full consultation with the Chair about study abroad is essential for constructing a viable program.
Honors students wishing to use OCST credits for an honors preparation should speak to the department chair before departing and after returning. OCST credits being used as an honors preparation, will need to be approved by the end of the add/drop period of the fall term of the senior year -so that any problems declaring preparations are resolved quickly.
Upon return students should submit material to the department for credit approval, with the Philosophy Department cover sheet. The packet should include as much of the following as possible: syllabus, reading list, lecture notes, written papers, exams, a copy of transcript with grade, and pre-estimation form.
Please consult the Off-Campus Study Office web page for additional information and forms.
