Study abroad gives the mathematics major a broader range of upper level mathematics courses to take, which complement the courses offered here at Juniata. Study abroad also gives students the opportunity to interact with experts in the fields of mathematics from different countries.
Because of the progression of a typical major in our programs, the best time for students to go abroad is during their junior year. At this point, the students would have fulfilled mathematics requirements and would be prepared to take upper level mathematics courses. Upper level mathematics courses taken abroad will, in general, satisfy the Mathematics POE requirements for upper level courses. Approval of these courses is handled on a case-by-case basis by the Mathematics department.
Students in the past have taken upper level mathematics courses from the University of Edinburgh (Scotland) through the St. Andrews Society Scholarship, the University of Newcastle (Australia) and the University of Leeds (England). Other excellent opportunities are the Budapest semesters in Hungary and the Math in Moscow program at the Independent University of Moscow where all courses in both programs are taught in English. International partners that offer upper level mathematics courses also include the University of the Gambia (Africa) and the University of Waikato (New Zealand).
