The following are study abroad opportunities specific to computer science majors.
While there are many opportunities to study abroad and they are all worthwhile experiences, there are two specific programs that the Computer Science Department has worked on that allow you to continue your computer science education while abroad.
- National University of Singapore: School of Computing (Study Abroad Site)
- University College London (Study Abroad Site)
These two programs will expose you to world-class computer science programs while getting the benefits of study abroad. They both offer a broad range of courses that are appropriate and valuable. We are not able to able to identify equivalence and acceptance of every course that is offered, so we only examine courses when a student is interested in taking them. Once that is done, this is the repository for pre-approved eligible course equivalences and pre-approval. If you are interested in taking a course that is not listed at either of the schools, please send that information to the Director of Undergraduate Studies and we will evaluate the course as quickly as possible. (Note that an elective on this chart means that it does count toward the major.)
We limit the number of courses that may be transferred in for major credit to 2 courses. The reason for this limitation is to encourage the student to explore other areas while they are abroad and to assure that you get a breadth of computer science from our department. We want more than half or your elective courses to be taken from our department.
We also will no longer give transfer credit for COMP 283, 401, 410 and 411 from these or any other study abroad programs. This is not because the courses at other universities are inadequate, but because we want students to focus on courses that are not offered here and taking the basic courses here assures that you have the specific topics that we assume in later courses.
