Approved List of Courses

Courses must be taken at Penn State; courses from abroad are not usable.

 

Students are advised that registration may be by priority for some courses and that prerequisites are required for many 400-level courses.

 

“Special topics” (497) courses that are primarily international in focus, and other 400-level international courses not on this list, may be submitted to the International Studies adviser for special approval.

 

All 400-level courses in foreign language departments (e.g., SPAN, FR, GER, etc.) automatically qualify.
