Course Information:
Students may enroll in a wide range of courses across various disciplines. History courses are difficult to find in the Spring semester, as most are year-long modules. Cardiff is a good option for W&M business students.

Except for History, all courses must be pre- or post-approved. History courses will be automatically approved as HIST 299 once students submit a syllabus to the Global Education Office at Reves. Grades will not appear on transcripts or be included in GPA calculations.
