Description: The Department of Anthropology has provided information for students participating in the UC Education Abroad Program (UCEAP). Students participating on other study abroad programs should contact the department directly for more information.
Study Abroad Questionnaire:
- Is there a specific time frame in which students are required to declare a major in your department? If yes, when?
- Does the undergraduate adviser sign the UCEAP academic planning form, or must a faculty adviser sign?
The undergraduate adviser signs.
- Should students make an appointment to have their academic planning form signed in your department? If so, do they need to bring a transcript or any other supplemental materials with them to their appointment?
The student should make an appointment via email. No supplemental materials are needed.
- What is the maximum amount of major credit given for courses taken during UCEAP? Is this maximum calculated by number of courses or by units of credit?
Varies by classes taken, where taken and what the student is asking for. Note we accept a maximum of four classes.
- Are students in your department able to undertake a senior honors thesis the semester following UCEAP participation?
- Does your department calculate UCEAP grades into departmental GPA?
- Are UCEAP grades counted towards departmental honors?
- If you represent a department which teaches foreign language, does your department award major credit for the courses taken during the Intensive Language Program (ILP) portion of the UCEAP program?
- Does your department distribute a special information sheet for your majors which includes advice on how to articulate participation with UCEAP with the major?
- Does your department place Academic holds on declared majors prior to each registration period? If yes, what is your departmental policy on releasing advising holds for students currently abroad on UCEAP (e.g. is advising possible via email, skype, etc.)?
Yes. Advising is possible via email, skype, and phone calls. I advise students abroad via email, I work with my Anthro Majors ahead well in advance of their 'Phase 1' date to ensure they may register on time. I can release the hold while abroad if it was not handled before going abroad. If they are in a country lacking Internet access, we set up a proxy person to register for them.
