International Exchange Program

The AMST Department encourages majors to consider the cross-cultural experiences to be gained by University study abroad. In recent years students have engaged in exchange semesters with such British universities as the University of Wales at Swansea, the University of Wolverhampton, near Birmingham, and DeMontfort University in Leicester, and students from those universities have studied American Studies at UMBC. In developing exchange possibilities, the department cooperates closely with UMBC’s Office of International Education.

The Jim Arnquist Fund has been established to assist in the transportation costs of UMBC students participating in the AMST international exchange program.
