Academic Programs


The Education Abroad Program (EAP) is an excellent opportunity to lean more about another country and its culture while taking long programs, a wide range of shorter options are also available. While on EAP, students are still eligible for financial assistance. Students are advised to plan study abroad well in advance so as to ensure that the courses taken fit with their overall program back at UCR. For further details see the University of California's EAP website and www.uoeap.ucsb.edu or contact UCR's International Services Center at (951) 827-4113.

In the upper division, the program invites outstanding students to design and produce honors theses and projects under individual faculty supervision, through the departmental Honors Program, highly qualified students are invited to conduct a research thesis of their own initiative and design in collaboration with a faculty member. Participation in the Honors Program is the capstone of an excellent education.
