All majors are encouraged to seriously consider study abroad as part of their educational experience. Dickinson's approach to financial aid and careful integration of study abroad with on-campus requirements should make such study possible in most cases. Some considerations that majors should think about:
• In most cases, the most logical first program to look at is the program co-sponsored by the arts and humanities departments in London and Norwich, England. Contact person for this program is Todd Wronski.
• It should be noted that most study abroad programs (including the Norwich program) generally do not include studio art training in their course offerings. Therefore, theatre students should make sure they have completed directing, design, and technology before leaving for their junior year abroad (thus making it possible to take Advanced Directing upon their return).
• All majors studying abroad must complete form A (at the back of this handbook) and have it approved by their advisor before being approved for study abroad. This will ensure that an appropriate plan for meeting all prerequisites is in place.
• Students studying abroad are strongly encouraged to consider ways in which their study abroad experience could be developed into senior projects/ performance pieces upon their return to campus.
