Emory students may choose to take a semester abroad through programs approved by CIPA (Center for International Programs Abroad). Students considering studying abroad should contact the CIPA office (7-2240) for a list of Emory and non-Emory programs. In some cases, it may be possible for psychology courses taken through one of these programs to be included in the ten courses (old requirement) or twelve courses (new requirement) required for the major. Students should understand that it may not be possible to take courses toward the major while abroad depending on the courses that are offered by the host institution. Acceptance by CIPA into a study abroad program does NOT guarantee that appropriate courses will be available in the major. Courses taken abroad through Emory and non-Emory programs will NOT automatically count toward the major. Courses MUST be approved in writing before the student goes abroad and returning students MUST bring back a syllabus for the course as well as additional supporting evidence, including textbooks or readings used, papers written or copies of exams. See Dr. Strock in Room 387 for course approvals.
