Study Abroad

Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.

Ibn Battuta
c. 1365

Study abroad is an experience which can deepen your historical understanding and perspective. It can also be a transformative, enriching experience which contributes greatly to personal growth.

The study abroad program in Barbados is supported from within the history department, and there are many other exciting study abroad opportunities offered through VCU's Global Education Office. History majors who are interested in study abroad are encouraged to visit history’s adviser, Ryan O'Hallahan, to discuss how program credits would apply to their particular goals and needs.
