Study Abroad Programs at Sewanee Appropriate for the IGS Major

Below, you will find abroad programs run by Sewanee faculty that are appropriate to satisfy various major requirements in IGS. Please read each paragraph carefully as some programs fulfill study abroad, language, and course work requirements, while others fulfill only some of these. Recall that for a course to count toward your major, it must be included in one of your geographic or thematic sub-categories. Study abroad and language requirements must be appropriate to your geographic sub-category. If you have any questions, please contact your advisor, the person running the program in question, or the IGS chair.
