Carnegie Mellon University

Study Abroad

In addition to study abroad options through Carnegie Mellon University's study abroad programs, the English Department has several department-specific options for students wanting to study abroad:

Undergraduate Exchange with Sheffield Hallam University in Sheffield, UK

Undergraduate students in the spring of their junior year are eligible for a study abroad option at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) in Sheffield, UK. Course offerings include creative workshops in Poetry, Short Story, Novel, and Script; additional courses include Renaissance Studies, Modern Drama 1880-1990, Sociolinguistics, Libertines and Devils, Children's Language, Children's Literature, Literature of the 18th Century and Romantic Period, Race, Slavery and Empire in the 19th Century, and British and American Literature.

Sheffield Hallam University students also have the option to study at CMU. And, in Spring 2016, we launched a faculty exchange where Jim Daniels, our Thomas Stockham Baker University Professor of English, teaches at SHU and SHU's Conor O'Callaghan teaches at CMU. Read the CMU news story on the faculty exchange.

Cohon Travel Award

Each year, one student applying to the SHU Exchange Program is awarded the Cohon Travel Award, which is worth $1,000 and is meant to help defer the cost of the program. Here's a list of past winners:
