Study Abroad for CAMS Majors

The CAMS faculty recognize that study abroad complements a liberal arts education and is a compelling option for meeting the COLL 300 requirement. Students who choose to study abroad gain maturity, self-knowledge and appreciation of the cultural differences among people, all of which contribute to professional success. CAMS majors interested in study abroad should start discussions with their advisors early. 

The W&M faculty-led winter programs and embedded programs can minimize the impact of study abroad on taking coursework during the academic year. All W&M Study Abroad programs provide credit for COLL 300; some W&M programs also provide credit for language proficiency courses or COLL 200.

The Global Education Office (GEO) at the Reves Center manages all aspects of study abroad programs for W&M. Advisors will guide you from pre- to post-program with research, advising, financial aid opportunities, procedures, academic credit, and more.

Additional guidance for pre-health career students

All prerequisite coursework required for domestic medical, dental, pharmacy and veterinary school is best taken at an accredited American college or university – check with the relevant professional schools before deciding to take ANY prerequisite courses abroad. Required prerequisite coursework taken abroad may have to be retaken at an accredited college or university in the United States prior to matriculation at some medical schools. Consult the Health Professions Advisor for additional guidance.
