Study Abroad

Students in the European and Eurasian Studies M.A. Program have a variety of options to study abroad for a semester, summer, or for other short programs as an integral part of their degree.

EES students can earn up to 10 credits towards their M.A. degree while studying for a semester at an Elliott School Exchange Partner (see below). Each program (except in Paris) has a full curriculum taught in English, with opportunities for language studies. Because of academic calendar of these institutions differs from that at GW, EES students should plan to study abroad during their first spring semester in the M.A. program.

Students in the EES program can participate in GW Summer Abroad programs, such as Central European Politics in Prague and Bratislava, taught by Prof. Sharon Wolchik. New programs are announced by GW each December.

Finally, students may participate in other accredited study abroad programs, with the permission of the Program Director.

IERES and the Elliott School offer some financial aid to help defray costs of studying abroad. For more information click here.
