Study Abroad


The Faculty of Arts maintains bilateral exchange programs with many universities around the world and encourages students to spend a term or two studying abroad, either through an exchange program or independently.

Studying at another university is an opportunity which can enrich your undergraduate education and provide you with a chance for personal growth.  A term or year abroad takes planning and must be approved by the Faculty of Arts.  Be sure to carefully read the information about the various types of studying abroad opportunities: Exchange, Independent Study Away, Quebec University Studies, Online Courses, Explore program, Field Studies and off-Campus courses.
