Usually a few mathematics majors choose to spend a semester or a year studying mathematics at universities abroad. It is usual to spend a semester of the junior year, or rarely the entire junior year, abroad, rather than the senior year; for while it is usually possible to make arrangements for junior independent work while abroad, it is somewhat harder to make arrangements for the senior thesis supervision, or the final examinations at the end of the senior year.
In recent years, Mathematics majors have studied abroad through the following programs:
- University of Melbourne, Australia
- University of Hong Kong, China
- Worcester College, University of Oxford, England
- Center for University Programs Abroad (CUPA), Paris, France
- Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France
- Budapest Semesters in Mathematics, Hungary
- Math in Moscow, Independent University, Russia
- National University of Singapore
- University of Cape Town, South Africa
- IES Abroad in Salamanca, Spain
Additionally, students have studied at Cambridge University in England, at branches of the Universite de Paris, at Bonn University in Germany, and at various universities in Israel.
