The Department of Communication also offers a Bachelor of Arts in Panama. The idea is that students from Panama can take all the courses needed for a degree and never leave Panama! The requirements for the degree are identical to those for the Bachelor of Arts on Belknap campus. We partner with a Panamanian university called Quality Leadership University (QLU) in Panama City, Panama. Some courses are taught by regular U of L faculty and other courses are taught by QLU faculty. The courses at QLU or on Belknap campus are identical, except for where they are offered. In addition to the courses other departments in A&S offer in Panama, QLU offers many courses (link to a PDF) on a regular basis.
Students from Louisville can also take courses at QLU in Panama! Students can do a semester or more in Panama just as if they were attending courses on Belknap campus. In fact, students can pay the regular U of L tuition and that will cover their tuition and room and U of L will pay for the flight to and from Panama. Because the curriculum at both locations is the same students can do a semester in Panama and still graduate on time.
