Off-campus Study Options

Students majoring in psychology have participated in Reed-approved programs at sites such as Sussex University, Hebrew University, Howard University, and Sarah Lawrence College. For students with requisite language proficiency, Reed programs in, for example France, Spain, Costa Rica and Germany are options. Students planning to study off-campus, especially at non-American universities, should consult with a psychology adviser as soon as possible, because many courses will not substitute for the required psychology courses listed in the departmental requirements above.
