The Department of Romance Studies strongly encourages all of its students, and especially its majors and minors, to participate in a study abroad experience. Study abroad opportunities are available in a variety of locations for a summer term, a semester, or a full year.

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