Many Smith English majors spend all or part of their junior years abroad. Most, predictably, have attended universities in England, Scotland or Ireland, but some have chosen Smith's own programs in Paris, Hamburg, Florence or Geneva, and a few hardy travelers have ventured as far as Australia. With careful planning, English majors are able to apply the credits they earned abroad toward their English department requirements on their return.

Choosing Where to Go

Since the English department publishes no officially recommended list of its own, you should make choices according to your own interests and preferences. First ask yourself some basic questions:

Conducting Research

Applying and Course Selection

When You Return

Arrange to transfer your study-abroad credits to Smith. See your major adviser; he or she will determine whether a course taken abroad is reasonably close to a Smith course in its coverage, its assignments and its methods of assessment.
