Honors College students are strongly encouraged, but not required, to study abroad. The Honors College recommends that students consider exploring this as an option in their sixth semester (spring semester of the third year); however, the Honors College will work with students who study abroad during other semesters to complete their Honors course requirements.
ECU has more than 37 Faculty-Led Summer Study Abroad Programs. Most programs have an application deadline of January 29, 2016 and a minimum 2.0 GPA requirement. For contact information, applications, and details for specific programs, visit piratesabroad.ecu.edu. Our Honors College students have traveled all over the world! For personal accounts of their experiences, visit the Honors College Living & Learning Blog. For any questions on how to fit your study abroad experience into your honors coursework and expectations, please contact our Academic Advisor, Mr. Jim Ellis.
