Each year some junior philosophy concentrators spend one or both semesters on foreign study, usually in Britain. The department has generally been flexible in allowing, within the limits of University regulations, departmental credit for work done abroad. If the student is planning to be away for only one semester and has a choice, the department recommends choosing spring so as not to miss the fall junior seminars here.
All students planning to study abroad, and especially those planning to be away for the entire junior year, are advised to apply to the department for early concentrator status, which is open to spring semester sophomores who have completed the prerequisite for entering the department by the end of the fall semester sophomore year, and allows the student to make an early start on independent work.
In recent years, Philosophy majors have studied abroad through the following programs:
- University of Sydney, Australia
- Worcester College, University of Oxford, Oxford, England
- Academic Programs Abroad, Paris, France
- Antioch College Buddhist Studies Program, India
- Bologna Consortial Studies via Indiana University, Italy
- Brown in Bologna, Italy
- Al Akhawayn University, Ifrane, Morocco
- University of Cape Town, South Africa
