More than half of Gettysburg College English majors spend a semester studying abroad. English majors may receive credit for participating in any number of Study Abroad programs; such participation usually takes place in a student's third year. English majors are especially encouraged to study in Britain, in such programs as Bath and Lancaster.
A favorite program for English majors and minors is Advanced Studies in England at Bath, offered in association with University College, Oxford. This program is available during both the fall and spring semesters.
Also of special interest to English majors and minors is the Lancaster Study Abroad program in Lancaster, England. This program offers students such opportunities as living and learning both in London and at the University of Lancaster. This program is offered in the fall semester only.
Contact the English Department to learn more about course credit in Bath or Lancaster. Because these are affiliated programs, grades and financial aid are transferred, and courses may count toward major requirements.
The College can provide information on other programs, including those that offer students the opportunity to study abroad in the spring semester or during summer break as well as during the fall semester.
Information about this and other Study Abroad programs can be found at the Office of Off-Campus Studies on the 2nd floor of the College Union Building (CUB).
