I've always loved the thought of studying abroad for a semester and my school offers this really cool trip to South Africa for my intended major that I would love to go on. However, I'm also planning to take Japanese all four years. Is doing both of these things impossible? For example, if I miss the 301 class fall semester of my junior year, would I not be able to take 302 in the spring and thus would have to take only 3 years instead?
I have these concerns in particular, but I also don't understand how scheduling works in general with taking a whole semester off. If you studied abroad for a semester in college, how did you work out scheduling? Thanks
