The Department of Mathematics and Statistics encourages its majors to participate in study abroad programs. The best semesters to arrange for study abroad are typically second semester junior year or first semester senior year. The best Math/Stat courses to take elsewhere are usually elective courses for the Math major.  Required core courses and required upper level courses are best taken at UMD. This provides better quality control on student preparation for courses which follow, as well as for graduating students.

It is best to make plans well ahead of time. A year in advance is usually enough. In particular, it often takes significant time to choose courses at an institution abroad that are appropriate for the student's preparation. The name of a course alone is not enough to determine whether it is appropriate. Courses with the same name can be taught at many different levels. A department faculty member can usually determine from a course syllabus what the level of a Math/Stat course is that is taught abroad. If you are interested in a specific course at a specific location abroad, it is useful to collect syllabus information about that course and bring it to the department. Liberal education courses are often easier to match to UMD requirements than are major courses.

For more information about making arrangements to study abroad, ask the International Education Office at UMD. To discuss specific Math/Stat courses that might be taken abroad and counted toward the Math or Stat majors, ask in the Math/Stat office (SCC 140) what faculty members are currently advising study abroad students.
