The Lehigh University English Department encourages its majors to study abroad. Although many decide to study in the United Kingdom or another English-speaking country (such as Australia), some find exciting opportunities around the world. In many cases, students can transfer some credits back to Lehigh, including credits that count toward fulfilling the major (transfer of credits is approved on a case by case basis). The English major is structured to facilitate spending a semester (or even a year) at a foreign university.
