Policy on Applying Study Abroad Courses to Environmental Studies Major or Minor

Students may apply courses taken abroad toward their Environmental Studies & Sciences major or minor only if the courses have been approved by an academic department at Rhodes or the director of the Environmental Studies & Sciences program, and if these courses have a substantial and sustained engagement with environmental questions and issues. Before leaving the United States, students must provide syllabi and descriptions of the courses they plan to take while abroad to the director of the Environmental Studies & Sciences program. The director will determine whether the proposed course of study abroad contains sufficient environmentally-oriented content. According to Rhodes College official policy, a student must earn at least 50% of his or her credits at Rhodes. No more than 50% of the course requirements can be transferred from another institution for credit toward the Environmental Studies or Sciences minors.
