Exchange Programs for History Majors

Purdue has reached overarching agreements with several universities across the world; you can study at any of them for the cost of Purdue’s tuition! In fact, at the moment, our university will kick in $3,000 toward the cost of the semester – so why not take advantage of this generous offer?

The History Department has established special working relationships with four universities, one in England (the University of Essex) and three in Australia (Monash University, the University of Sydney, and the University of New South Wales). Click here for a PDF brochure outlining the basics.

These universities have shared with us their planned course offerings for the next few years. For this reason, we can allow you to see the equivalent credit you would receive for specific courses taken at their universities. Click here to see a list of some example course offerings at these universities and the equivalent Purdue credits that you would receive if you took them.

Please note that there are several other exchange options available to you – both in English-speaking countries and in France, Germany, and Mexico. Because these involve direct enrollment at those universities, you would need to have an intermediate level of language fluency in order to take part productively in their coursework.
