Study Abroad Opportunities

The Department of Modern Languages strongly encourages students to study abroad. Through the numerous programs available directly via our department, and through the Education Abroad Office, students can broaden their horizons, apply what they learn in the classroom, expand their knowledge of culture and language, while earning credits toward their degree. Studying abroad allows students to further their education not only in their language degree, but also in whatever other major they might be enrolled in. Students can prepare for a rewarding experience abroad by first developing basic language skills in a variety of languages in our department. Studying abroad can be fun, exciting, and separate you from others on the job market.

Are there any scholarships available to study abroad?
The Department of Modern Languages offers study abroad-specific scholarships, but much more are available through the Education Abroad Office, as well as the Office of Nationally Competitive Scholarships (towards the bottom of the page).
