Study Abroad Option for Psychology Majors

Psychology majors have an option to study abroad. Psychology majors may apply for any program as long as they meet the eligibility requirements (semesters of school, language proficiency, GPA, etc).

Here are important steps to follow

1. Decide on country and program to study abroad.

The Office of Study Abroad at GW can provide information for this. Depending on the program/country, students may apply to these programs prior to getting courses approved.

2. Get Psychology courses approved. The Psychology Study Abroad coordinator will review the program and approve the courses.
