Study Abroad for Geology Majors

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

The W&M faculty-led summer, winter, and embedded programs have favorable scheduling for minimizing the impact of study abroad on working towards a Geology degree on campus. Embedded programs run by the geology department are listed as Regional Field Courses; more information about these courses can be found under Field Experiences. 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 for International Studies manages all aspects of study abroad programs for W&M. Advisors at the GEO will guide you from pre- to post-program with research, advising, financial aid opportunities, procedures, academic credit, and more.
