Pursue Academic and Personal Goals
Choose a core course from 11 academic programs and select from 50 upper-level elective courses. Your freedom of choice extends to your housing, where you apply for living arrangements that best fit you.

Academic Excellence  
Intellectually stimulating courses challenge you to examine issues from various perspectives, as you debate, research, analyze, and reflect on contemporary topics and burning issues.

Experiential Learning  
With an emphasis on hands-on learning experiences, you have opportunities to simulate real-life scenarios, make connections, and build your resume.

Europe as Your Classroom  
Take your classroom on the road on two course-integrated, faculty-led study tours with your core course! Visit important sites and meet with local experts who add cultural perspectives to your knowledge of the field.

Faculty Who Teach What They Do  
Most faculty work as professionals in the areas they teach, bringing theory to life by sharing real-world examples in the classroom.  

Supportive Environment  
Academic counseling and personal support resources are available to you during your time abroad, providing you a solid foundation upon which to grow. 

Cultural Learning
In your courses, you focus on the importance of cultural context and are exposed to how issues are perceived, lived, and theorized in Europe. It is also your chance to reflect on the cultural norms and values that shape you.

Meet the Locals
Living in a Homestay, signing up for a sports team, taking a Swedish Language and Culture course, or attending an evening seminar are among the ways to build your international network and meet the locals.

Courses and Credits 

Each course a student takes abroad, regardless of the grade received or how course credit counts toward degree requirements, must:
  • Be approved. Student may either select courses from the pre-approved course list or seek course approval via the credit evaluation process; students are strongly encouraged to do this prior to submitting their applications.
  • Transfer back to the student’s Ohio State record.
  • Be completed for graded Ohio State credit. This grade will be factored into the student’s GPA.
PLEASE NOTE: Course approval, either via the pre-approved course list or completion of the credit evaluation process, does not guarantee the availability of the course abroad. Students must consult their program provider regarding course availability and talk with their Ohio State academic advisor to ensure that approved course options are appropriate given their degree requirements. All students should have multiple back-up courses approved. Canceling participation for failure to secure approval for desired course work will be subject to the cancellation policy
