Domestic and international scholarly exchanges provide graduate students with a variety of opportunities that broaden academic horizons. Whether the underlying reason for participating in an exchange resides in mastering course content in another language, visiting archives, collections, and fellow scholars first hand, or learning new methodologies that will inform the dissertation, students benefit from a period of study at one of the many host institutions with which we have agreements.
The Exchange Scholar Program
The Graduate School participates in the Exchange Scholar Program with Berkeley, Brown, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, MIT, Penn, Princeton and Stanford. This program enables you, as a doctoral candidate, to register as a student at one of these institutions while pursuing coursework and research for a term or an academic year. You are eligible to participate in this exchange after you have completed your first year of coursework. If you are interested download the application to the right and contact Dean Carl Hashimoto for further information.
In addition, the Graduate School has established and continues to develop formal exchanges with a number of institutions internationally in cases where there are reciprocal academic benefits for faculty and graduate students. If you are interested in pursuing one of these exchanges, please contact Dean Carl Hashimoto.
