Notes:

Students knowing they’ll seek major credit should review this link, and fill out the “pre-departure review form” prior to travelling abroad – this does NOT guarantee credit transfer, just gives a good idea of if/how a course may transfer back to the Communication major.

The programs listed below have been designated by the Communication Department as a good fit for Communications students; however, the institutions and programs listed below are not an exhaustive list of locations for Communication students. Courses taken on all programs listed below (exception: Communication in New Zealand as students will earn UNC Graded Credit) will transfer as study abroad transfer credit, provided students earn the equivalent of a UNC “C” grade or better.

Please note: Communication students are only required to take a certain number of courses within their concentrations; if an institution/program is highlighted for a certain concentration that does not mean students cannot earn major credit when studying abroad at that location.
