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.

Summer 2021 Study Abroad 

Thinking about studying abroad in Summer 2021 but concerned about COVID-related challenges?

Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

We are planning ahead and developing AMAZING experiences for 2021, with the understanding that these travel plans might have to be canceled.

Here’s what we’re doing to ensure the safety of our students and to make sure students aren’t penalized financially.

  • To secure your placement in a Study Abroad course, you WILL have to  submit a $500 deposit by the Dec. 4, 2020 deadline (spots fill up quickly, so the earlier you deposit, the better!).
  • Safety is our top priority.  The Honors College, along with the university, will determine by mid-February if travel abroad is safe for our students in Summer 2021.
  • If we aren’t able to travel, students will be reimbursed the FULL deposit!

Please contact our Study Away Coordinator, Kevin Metcalf, if you have additional questions.

 

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. Visit our Study Away BTC page to learn more!

In addition to the SCHC summer courses listed below, Honors students can also earn Honors "beyond the classroom" credit through an upcoming, journalism-focused UofSC spring semester study abroad experience - UofSC Students in Rome, Italy – Spring 2021.
