Students can take GS250 (Exploring Study Abroad) any semester before studying abroad and is designed to help students investigate the numerous destinations and programs available to them, as well as how these programs fit within the Fort Lewis College curriculum and credit transferability guidelines.
General Studies 251 (GS251: International Studies) is required for students who intend to study abroad through the International Programs Office. You must have your instructor’s permission to sign up for the course. This course is taken the semester directly prior to study abroad. For example, if you plan to study abroad in Spring 2021, you must take GS251 in Fall 2020.
You will also prepare for departure by applying for student visas, learning how to stay healthy while abroad, and preparing for credits taken abroad to transfer back to FLC.
