Buenos Aires

This two-week, 3-credit course travels in May but counts as a Spring course. Explore the city that Jorge Luis Borges roamed, see the museums, visit the most beautiful cafes in the world and walk through the most renowned cemetery this side of Paris. This city, in fact, is called the "Paris of the Western Hemisphere" for a good reason. You don't even need to speak Spanish.

See our Web site for more details or contact Dr. Paula Kamenish or Shirley Mathews.

International Studies Courses

The English Department offers a varying number of study abroad courses that take place in countries such as Argentina and Wales.

These courses, not a part of the permanent course list, vary in length and may take place during the regular semesters or summer sessions.
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 takes place outside the United States, and often is 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 (ENG 294) and/or INT 494 (ENG 494).

Study Abroad/International Exchange

The first stop for interested students is the Office of International Programs, which gives a step-be-step how-to on registering for these study abroad opportunities.

If the student wants to apply credit in these courses toward a degree at the University of North Carolina Wilmington, they should start the process here by searching on all the possible options.

Two Weeks in Buenos Aires

Students can register in the fall for the 2-week, 3-credit Spring semester course, ENG 294: Buenos Aires - Capital of Culture.
