(July 25, 2002, Gazette)
from the programs on the previous pages, Memorial schools and faculties
offer a range of possibilities for studying abroad. While not an exhaustive
list, what follows is a sample of the possibilities. If you are interested
in studying abroad, contact the faculty or school of your interest and
inquire about study aboard programs.
The Faculty of Arts is affiliated with a Canada-European Union Exchange
agreement. However, the single destination attracting significant numbers
of arts students is Memorial's Harlow campus. Each year the Faculty of
Arts attempts to offer two programs, one in the fall and one in the spring.
In fall 2002, the first program offered under the new European Studies
minor will be offered by Drs. Steven Wolinetz, Political Science, and
James Hiller, History. This program is titled War, Reconstruction and
European Union. For more, see www.mun.ca/arts/.
Sir Wilfred Grenfell College in Corner Brook is affiliated with
the National Student Exchange. For more information about NSE opportunities

There is a memo of understanding between the International University
in Germany and Memorial University for the operation of a collaborative
university-wide program. The Department of Computer Science has had two
German students registered in our computer science courses, with three
more expected for Fall 2002. To date, no computer science students from
MUN have availed of the opportunity to study at the International University
in Germany. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
