The EPE program heartily encourages students to participate in study abroad programs as part of the major and as part of their overall Yale experience. EPE students have recently traveled to Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, India, Spain, and South Africa, among many other nations. In general, coursework completed abroad can count towards the EPE concentration but not towards introductory or core requirements. Questions about how study abroad will affect progress in the major and approval for study abroad should be discussed directly with the Director of Undergraduate Studies. Questions about various study abroad programs should be directed to the Study Abroad Office.
