What is a Carleton Course Taught Abroad?

Some academic units offer courses taught abroad, i.e. courses taught by Carleton instructors to Carleton students, outside of Canada. The topics of these courses can change from year to year. They are run in a range of different countries and can be run by different faculty and different departments.  These courses are usually held in the early summer term and typically take place over a three week period.

These courses are open to BGInS students who have third year standing at the time of the course, though some options may have some additional course prerequisites.
