Study Abroad with UCEAP

History students are enthusiastically encouraged to study abroad! In addition to experiencing cultures shaped by centuries of historical events (that you've likely read about), studying abroad provides you with a unique opportunity to gain important life and work experience. Students who participate in the UC Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) can select from 46 different countries (and counting) and over 400 different program options. Most programs offer history courses that are readily applied to your major or minor requirements! Several UCEAP programs also have language acquisition, internship, and research opportunities.


Academic Planning for Study Abroad

Up to three courses completed abroad may apply to your history major or minor requirements. Courses must transfer back to UCSC for a minimum of 4 quarter units each and must also be passed with a C (or equivalent) or better.

UCEAP Public Course Catalog

The UCEAP Public Course Catalog lists courses previously completed by UCEAP students and indicates how many lower or upper division UC quarter units each course was awarded upon transfer.

Several courses offered abroad are pre-approved to apply to the history major. Courses completed abroad that are not already pre-approved may be petitioned.

You can expect to satisfy requirements abroad that correspond with the country and/or region that you are studying in. For example, an Americas and Africa history major studying abroad in Germany can plan on satisfying their Europe and the Mediterranean World breadth requirements abroad.

Sample Academic Plans

As a history student you can readily create a plan that incorporates study abroad, no matter where you'd like to go or for how long you'd like to participate. Short or long term programs, including summer, quarter, semester, or year-long, are available. Some history majors have even studied abroad up to three separate times!

Use the sheet tabs included below to review a selection of sample two and four year academic plans. Individual student's plans usually vary depending on their unique educational goals. Mention education abroad the next time you meet with the history adviser to create a plan that works for you.
