Study Away

The Honors College actively encourages students to enrich their educational experience by studying away from campus. The term Study Away is used to describe both domestic and international opportunities.

Important SCHC Study Away update:

All Honors College Study Away experiences have been canceled for Summer 2020.  This includes: 

  1. Tracing the Holocaust
  2. Art and Culture of Japan
  3. Physical Activity in the Netherlands and Denmark
  4. Smithsonian Externship

 With worldwide travel advisories from the CDC and the U.S. State Department, UofSC has canceled all study abroad programs with a start date in May through June 30th.

Questions related to Honors College study away should be directed to Kevin Metcalf, SCHC study away coordinator. 

 

Adventure awaits!

There are many opportunities available for study away through the University of South Carolina. Short-term summer programs are a popular option, and increasingly, students are opting to study abroad for a semester or a full year. The Honors College sponsors several faculty-led short-term programs each year.

The Honors College Beyond the Classroom requirement can be met by earning college credit for any study abroad program. Additional Honors College elective requirements can be met by studying abroad for a semester or full year. Honors College core requirements can be met by participating in an Honors College sponsored study away program.
