“I am a part of all that I have met;
Yet all experience is an arch wherethrough
Gleams that untraveled world, whose margin fades
Forever and forever when I move.”
— “Ulysses” (1842) by Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892)
Each year, ACES James Scholars from the first-year, sophomore, junior, and senior classes may apply to participate in an international experience. This may consist of a two-week study tour; a summer, semester, or year at an institution in another country; or an internship with an international corporation.
Earning Honors Credit for ACES Study Abroad Experiences
ACES James Scholars who will be spending a summer, a semester or a year overseas should confer with the Assistant to the Honors Dean before their departure from campus to explore the possibility of earning honors credit for studying abroad through taking ACES 396: Honors Study Abroad Retrospective upon their return to campus. This course, which is overseen by the Honors Dean, gives scholars an opportunity to earn one hour of honors credit by undertaking a specific honors assignment that is agreed upon by the Honors Dean and the scholar. The honors assignment needs to be completed by the end of the semester immediately following the scholar’s return from overseas. The application form to register in ACES 396 is available on our “Resources” page.
