The Department strongly encourages all of its students, and especially its majors and minors, to enrich their study of language by participating in a study-abroad experience. Study-abroad opportunities are available in a variety of locations for one year, a semester, or a summer term.

Studying in another country is a challenging, life-changing, and never-forgotten experience. In addition to providing the opportunity of a foreign language immersion experience, the benefits of studying in a foreign environment include an accelerated rate of maturation and self-discovery; an increased ability to examine your own values, beliefs, and preconceptions; and a more sophisticated world view through greater inter-cultural understanding. Many students who study abroad also find themselves pursuing career paths that they hadn’t considered, or even knew existed, before going abroad.
