General Information
about Students, Majors, and Programs Abroad

Seventy-seven percent of all study abroad at Penn comes from the College. Most SAS students spend only one semester abroad; only 15% stay the entire year. The semester usually occurs during the junior year, following two years of language study to gain the requisite proficiency.

The largest numbers of College students come from majors in History, International Relations, Communications, English, Psychology, Political Science, , Economics, and Anthropology.

The most popular sites for SAS programs are in Paris (Reid Hall), Leuven, Jerusalem, Rome, Madrid, Seville, London (both Kings and UC). The new program with the Free University in Berlin (a consortium with Chicago, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Princeton, and Yale) should also attract a number of students.

SAS strongly encourages students to consider the options available in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
