International Studies Courses
Academic departments may offer special international study courses during the regular semesters or summer sessions without adding them to their permanent course list.
Each course is approved by the appropriate dean and include regular classroom assignments, lectures and discussions, travel and field work, and visits to historic and cultural sites.
Study will take place outside the United States, usually in association with local universities abroad.
Requirement: A student must have an overall grade point average of at least 2.0. The student may take up to 12 credit hours in INT 294 and/or INT 494.

Students who enroll in off-campus courses in institutions in foreign countries and want to apply credit in these courses toward a degree at the University of North Carolina Wilmington must complete the Permission for Study Abroad Approval Form, available in the Office of International Programs, before registering for the course.
