Study Abroad Program
The Study Abroad Program encourages qualified students to pursue international study for a semester or year. At times, students can also apply for Le Moyne College faculty led short-term study abroad programs offered during December/January and May/June. The staff guides students in choosing programs that fit both their academic needs and interests. Students also have the opportunity to talk with Study Abroad Ambassadors, Le Moyne students who have spent time abroad, and with faculty members familiar with academic programs of specific colleges and universities around the world. Le Moyne College currently has 13 study abroad program sites and is working to develop additional sites. Students may also pursue approved programs sponsored by other institutions. Information about Le Moyne’s Study Abroad Program and services can be obtained at www.lemoyne.edu/study_abroad.
Students traditionally study abroad during their junior year, but in some cases a student may, with approval, study abroad in other semesters. To begin the process, students are required to attend an informational session one year before their intended departure. They will learn about the program criteria at the meeting such as minimum cumulative G.P.A. and judicial record criteria. For specific eligibility requirements, please refer to the office’s website at www.lemoyne.edu/study_abroad. Students must also have the approval of both the study abroad coordinator and chair of their major. Students participating in the Study Abroad Program must secure advance approval from the director of the core for courses they plan to use to fulfill core requirements. Students majoring in certain disciplines, e.g., the sciences, or those seeking teaching certification, must work far in advance with their departments in order to study abroad. Limited spots are available for study abroad. For more information, contact the Assistant Director of Global Education at (315) 445-4189.
Many departments and programs of the College maintain affiliations with businesses, government offices and social service agencies. For example, the political science department offers semester-long internships in Washington, D.C., and Albany, N.Y., which are open to all majors and allow students to integrate classroom education with appropriate learning experiences in a non-academic setting. Grades for internships are High Pass (HP), Pass (P) or Fail (F). Interested students should apply to the chair of the department. For more information, contact the Office of Career Advising & Development at 445-4185.
Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC)
Students at Le Moyne College may take reserve officer training through the Department of Military Science and the Department of Aerospace Studies at Syracuse University. Both the Army program in military science and the Air Force program in aerospace studies have basic courses, generally taken in the freshman and sophomore years, and advanced courses taken in the junior and senior years. Upon award of a bachelor’s degree, students who have successfully completed advanced course requirements become commissioned second lieutenants in the United States Army or the United States Air Force. Admission to the advanced courses is generally contingent upon successful completion of the Army or Air Force freshman and sophomore courses, a satisfactory physical profile, and demonstration of academic proficiency and leadership potential. Under certain conditions, however, students who have not completed basic courses may apply during their sophomore year for the advanced courses and compete for entry into advanced ROTC at the fall registration of the junior year.
Those interested should inquire at the appropriate Syracuse University ROTC office for more information and application forms. Questions related to transferring ROTC credits to Le Moyne should be directed to the registrar’s office at Le Moyne.
