Study Abroad

Study abroad opens the doors to an entire world of new experiences. Immerse yourself in another culture, learn a new language, or become proficient in a language you've studied at the university. You can even apply study abroad credits toward your history major. Contact the history department's academic advisor, Dr. Kathryn Gallien (, for more information on applying your course credit to your history degree.

Student Experiences

Ben Ancharski

"It’s something to read about the places you study; it’s another thing to travel abroad and see the actual environment, to interact with real people, and feel the ambiance where history took place. As a student interested in the early Modern Period, I loved seeing the difference between the Old World and the Americas. I can’t wait to travel again!"    

Pictured: Tallinn, Estonia—one of the eight countries Ben visited on the tour.

  • Class: Sophomore
  • Majors: History and Anthropology
  • Minor: Spanish
  • Emphasis: Ancient Mediterranean 
  • Study Abroad Program: The Honors Trip

"After the Honors Trip to Rome, Madrid, and London, I know I will never forget the awestruck feeling of walking through antiquity and immersing myself in Roman culture. If I could, I would return to Europe in an instant. Travel truly corrupts the spirit with an unquenchable thirst to experience everything the world has to offer."

Pictured: Katrina stands in front of the her favorite monument of the trip, the Colosseum.
