Study Abroad!

Study Abroad Opportunities

The Modern & Classical Languages Department strongly encourages all students to spend an academic year at an approved university in the country of their language major. Appropriate credit is available for the semester(s) spent abroad so students will not be hindered in their progress toward graduation.  A semester, and preferably a year, abroad is the recommended minimum for students majoring in a foreign language.  Direct and prolonged exposure to the culture in a country where the language is spoken by native speakers is essentially the only path to true fluency.  If you wish to eventually reach this level of language proficiency it is never too early to start mapping out a plan for an exciting year abroad!
