“Exploring books and exploring
the world are related processes,
and no education is really complete
without opportunities to do both.”
—Professor Josephine Lee
English undergraduates find studying outside the United States life-changing—and surprisingly simple to fit into the major. You can:
- fit learning abroad easily into a four-year graduation plan;
- go anywhere in the world—you're not limited to taking English classes abroad;
- do internships and service learning abroad instead of taking courses;
- find affordable ways to learn overseas (see our Student Exchange, below, for one).
The Learning Abroad Center offers many programs that allow you to earn major credit or satisfy other degree requirements.
Student Exchange with the University of East Anglia
To make it possible for as many English majors to Study Abroad as possible, the department sponsors a student exchange program with the University of East Anglia. The program allows you to study in beautiful and historic Norwich, England, while paying UMTC tuition, saving you more than $9,000 compared to traditional study abroad programs. Sophomore, junior, and senior English majors with a GPA of at least 3.0 are eligible to apply.
