Study Abroad

The School of Psychological Sciences encourages students to consider studying abroad.  After deciding if study abroad is right for you and choosing a school to attend, share your plans with your advisor and get her/his approval for transfer of credits to the UNC psychology major.

UNC offers 100s of study abroad programs in more than 60 countries around the world. UNC’s portfolio  includes Colorado’s largest variety of affordable programs. Each semester students have nearly 200 options for study abroad with the same cost as attendance at UNC. While abroad, students can earn credits toward major, minor, and LAC requirements. Although psychology majors do not have to take courses in psychology while abroad, the programs listed below are recommended for those seeking credits in psychology.  While it is not a comprehensive list of programs from which you can transfer psychology credits to UNC, these schools provide instruction in English, allow you to pay UNC tuition as always, and in the past have provided a variety of psychology courses that will transfer. Other possible options are to study abroad through one of UNC’s 6 program providers or through National Student Exchange.  For more information about opportunities, please consult with Lauren Bruce, Study Abroad & Exchange Coordinator in the Center for International Education (970 351-1333).
