Special course for the transfer credit of pre-approved coursework taken at the University of Exeter, as part of the English department's study abroad program for English majors at the University of Exeter.
Study Abroad Program for English Majors at the University of Exeter
Deadline to apply October 2019
English majors may opt to spend the spring semester of their junior year at the University of Exeter in the U.K. Students planning to do so should complete ENGL 200 and ENGL 300 by the fall semester of their junior year (the semester preceding study abroad). At Exeter, students will take two courses or modules (each worth 30 Exeter credits) from Rice’s approved list of Exeter Courses.
The approved courses taken abroad will transfer back to Rice and will appear on the Rice transcript as special transfer credit. The English department has obtained special transfer credit status for these courses in that the final grades received on the Exeter transcript will be counted in the student’s Rice GPA. The two Exeter courses will be articulated as ENGL 325 (two instances of 3 semester credit hours each) with the remaining hours articulated as general TRAN credit. With pre-approval from the Department, ENGL 325 may additionally count toward elective and field requirements of the major in the following ways:
