The History Department encourages students to supplement their liberal arts education through foreign study. William & Mary has many such programs for students to attend, including but not limited to W&M summer and semester/year-long programs. 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. Learn more about studying abroad at GEO.
Students planning to enter the Department's honors program or pursue graduate work in history should keep in close contact with their advisor while abroad. Such contact is important, because students will need a faculty supervisor in order to enter the honors program. Also, faculty will be able to write more detailed letters of recommendation for graduate school when they have been kept apprised of students' studies while away from the College.
