Pathways to Study Abroad in Political Science

Political Science majors are urged to study abroad for a year or a semester, or whatever time period works for them. For example, the Department of Historical and Political Studies has sponsored one-week overseas opportunities in Europe and Asia for Model UN conferences.

Political Science majors can plan to study abroad during any semester except the fall of their senior year due to the required Senior Thesis Seminar course offered at that time.

Ideally, students should try to enroll in political science courses at an international university that are not offered on the Glenside campus, giving students a unique opportunity to interact with other students, faculty and public officials from another culture and political system.

Visit the University’s website for Pathways to Study Abroad ( Since it is important that students plan ahead for study abroad, they should consult with their advisers as soon as possible and make their intentions known to the Director of the major and the Associate Dean for International Affairs.
