Students pursuing a degree in chemistry may study abroad for a semester. Any student interested in studying abroad should meet with their faculty advisor before the sophomore year in order to plan a curriculum so that the student may complete their studies in four years. An appointment with the College’s Center for Global Engagement is also required.
Students are free to choose the overseas institution where they wish to study under the guidance of the Center for Global Engagement. It is recommended that students plan to take courses that will count toward liberal learning while studying abroad. Students who plan to take Chemistry courses while abroad must receive pre-approval from the Chair of Chemistry in order for the courses to count toward requirements for the major. However,the University of Newcastle (UON) in Australia has a large number of equivalent courses in Chemistry that fulfill core and advanced options requirements.
