Off-Campus Programs

The History Department encourages you to study abroad, an opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of your chosen country while earning credit toward your degree. You should be considering an overseas study experience for many reasons: the benefits of on-site education, a chance to gain experiential knowledge of another culture and of yourself, an excellent way to improve foreign language proficiency, or as part of your preparation for an international career.

The Carleton History Department offers a range of off-campus programs (both full term and winter break), and students are encouraged to investigate non-Carleton or direct-enrollment programs that best meet their needs and interests.  Some non-Carleton programs have been pre-approved for OCS College Credit.

Fellowships are available to help defray the costs of off-campus study.
