Study Abroad & COLL 300

Meet the educational objectives of COLL 300 through Study Abroad!

"COLL 300 connects you with people, places, and ideas that lift you out of your familiar surroundings and deepen the way you see yourself in the world. It asks you to use your knowledge, your emerging expertise in framing questions, and your communication skills to engage the world in a self-reflective, cross-cultural way." http://www.wm.edu/as/undergraduate/curriculum/coll/300/ 

  • Students can satisfy COLL 300 requirements by earning at least three credits in a W&M sponsored international program. Students must successfully complete at least 3 credits, receive pre- or post-approval for the credits, and be registered through the Global Education Office (GEO) at the Reves Center. COLL 300 designation for these W&M-approved study abroad programs is automatic and does not require an additional request.

  • All William & Mary sponsored, international programs carry COLL 300 credit, irrespective of the courses taken while studying abroad.
  • Although COLL 300 typically happens in your third year, you are able to receive credit for COLL 300 through study abroad earlier.
  • Explore your program options
  • Learn more about the study abroad process by attending a Study Abroad 101 or Study Abroad 201 workshops, offered Monday-Friday.
  • Information for transfer students

“COLL 300 connects you with people, places, and ideas that lift you out of your familiar surroundings and deepen the way you see yourself in the world. It asks you to use your knowledge, your emerging expertise in framing questions, and your communication skills to engage the world in a self-reflective, cross-cultural way. Your experience might take the form of an international setting, where you study with faculty abroad in a program sponsored or endorsed by the Reves Center. Or maybe a W&M D.C. program that focuses on global or cross-cultural issues. Or a W&M off-campus, credit-bearing initiative that involves encounters with different environments and cultures. You can also experience COLL 300 on campus, through designated courses that address global or cross-cultural issues and are organized around a special series of lectures by W&M faculty, visiting scholars, artists, and public intellectuals.”
