The department of Health Sciences and the Hull York Medical School do not currently accept study abroad students.
HISTORY OF ART
As a smaller department, History of Art is very selective and accepts fewer students.
Courses in psychology are structured for a yearlong duration. Psychology majors wishing to attend for less than a year will only be able to take social psychology offered by the Sociology or Social Policy and Social Work Departments.
