Students may study for a semester or a full year through an approved study abroad program or, in special cases, by applying directly to universities in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland.

After consultation with the major adviser and the study abroad adviser to establish possible UNH course equivalents and fulfillment of major and/or Discovery Program requirements, students submit a planning form indicating the planned course of study abroad. To ensure proper credit transfer, especially if seeking to transfer credits directly from a university abroad without benefit of an Approved Program, students should keep syllabi, course descriptions, and all written work. Students planning study at a university in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland should note major differences in academic calendar (winter semester October-February, summer session April-July), which may be shortened by the Approved Program to accommodate U.S. academic calendars.

Northern Ireland, Scotland (& the Highlands), York and London
All UNH students are invited to enjoy this trip where they can combine their interests in security studies, history and culture, justice studies, sustainability & resilience, intelligence, emergency preparedness or terrorism studies with our nearly 3-week study abroad course to 5 cities in the UK: Belfast, Edinburgh, Pitlochry in the Highlands, York and London. The 18-day trip will explore domestic/civilian security and resilience challenges facing the UK while you explore Northern Ireland, Scotland, and England’s rich history, pubs, people and culture. The trip is specifically designed for UNH students and is open to all majors. Our time in Belfast and the Northern Irish Coast will include meetings with real IRA and Loyalist members, a guided tour of the Northern Irish Assembly, the Titanic Museum and a tour of the Antrim Coast including Carrick Fergus Castle, Giant’s Causeway and the Rede Rope Bridge; then on to Edinburgh that will include a special guest pass to see the First Minister’s Q&A at the Scottish Parliament, and time to enjoy the ancient city as well as a weekend in the Highlands (including hiking Ben Vrackie and a distillery tour). The group will view Alnwyck Castle en route to York, where we are special guests at the UK's Emergency Planning College. A day trip to Bletchley Park (home of the WWII code breakers) precedes our arrival in London, where activities include a custom guided spy walk and visiting the underground Churchill War Rooms. To travel with us, students approved to study abroad will enroll in HLS 656 for 1 credit in the summer (usually mid-May -mid-June). Note that interested students can also (but don’t need to) take HLS 555 which is only offered in the spring semester and is designated as a World Cultures Discovery course. HLS 555 focuses on the Troubles in Northern Ireland during the late 20th century, including the struggle for Irish independence, and the broader responses of the UK to domestic security threats from World War II to present times in Ireland and Northern Ireland. Students do not need to take HLS 555 to participate on the study abroad.
