Summer Study and Study Abroad

Getting Started

All students who wish to obtain credit for their study-abroad work in an East Asian language must speak with the director of the relevant language program here before they select a study-abroad program.  The language program directors are:

Students should take note that if they participate in a study-abroad program without prior consultation with one of these program directors, they run the risk of not receiving degree credit for their studies, or of not having their credit count toward their major or minor.

The meeting with a departmental language program director does not take the place of the Education Abroad Workshop or study abroad advising at the International Studies Office (ISO).  All students will still be expected to participate in the workshop and attend and consult with the ISO study abroad advisor responsible for East Asia, currently Ryan Hathaway (rch3p@virginia.edu).
