American University students are encouraged to study abroad almost anywhere in the world.
Students may study abroad between their second semester of sophomore year through their senior year. The Literature Department recommends that students study abroad during their junior year.
Literature majors can count up to six credit hours of pre-approved courses, taken while abroad, towards their upper level major course requirements.
Students need to let their academic advisor know as soon as possible about their desire to study abroad so they can meet to discuss their study abroad goals and how to fit this experience into their specific academic program and graduation requirements.
