Gateway to the world

GlobeAside 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 available to Grenfell students, contact Nicky Carlson at (709) 637-6200 Ext. 6408 or e-mail ncarlson@swgc.mun.ca

The International Centre has information on dozens of opportunities for study abroad. Contact Colleen Clarke at 737-4053, e-mail colleenc@mun.ca or see the Web site at www.mun.ca/international/.

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 compsci@cs.mun.ca.

The Department of Philosophy offers two opportunities. Coastal Inquiries is a student exchange program with Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands, and there is a philosophy exchange with University of Hanover, Germany. Contact Jennifer Dawe at 737-8336.
