Butler University encourages students to study in international
settings as part of their academic experience. Theatre majors may
choose to study for a semester, year or summer vacation period
during their junior year. All theatre majors continue taking
courses in theatre and/or core curriculum while studying abroad,
without losing progress toward their undergraduate degrees. All
grades earned are posted to an official Butler University
All students who wish to study abroad must apply through the Center for Global
Education. The Center for Global Education provides study
abroad advising, organizes pre-departure and reentry sessions, and
maintains Butler's list of Approved Programs for Overseas
Study. This list of overseas study opportunities offers a
wide variety of options to Butler students interested in studying
abroad during the academic year. All programs on the list meet
Butler's high standards for academic excellence.
Where Can I Study Abroad?
Butler runs a comprehensive study abroad program that encourages
students in their junior year to study at a university overseas for
one semester. The following countries have emerged as the most
popular destinations for theatre majors:
- United Kingdom
- China (Hong Kong)
- New Zealand
Decisions on which country to study in reflect the diversity of
interest and skill development among our theatre majors: for
example, Australia is favored by those interested in combining
theatre and film studies; Spain, Germany, China and South America
by those studying a foreign language, and the United Kingdom for a
range of options in acting technique, directing and arts
