In addition to the dozens of courses offered by the University of Nicosia, one three-credit-hour course will be taught by The Citadel's on-site program faculty member. The Office of Study Abroad will walk students through the course selection process upon acceptance into the program. Students are advised to speak with their academic advisor regarding courses to be taken abroad prior to the course selection process.
