Modern Languages and Cultures majors are strongly encouraged to study their major language in a French-speaking or Spanish-speaking country during the summer (Maymester, Summer I or Summer II), for a semester, or for a full year. Course equivalency must be arranged with the student's French or Spanish Advisor in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures and the study abroad advisor prior to departure. Scholarships for study abroad are available from the Office of International Education.
If study abroad is a difficult option due to financial hardship, an internship with an international company, a semester service learning project, or other projects approved by the chair and the faculty can be substituted for a study abroad experience. The French Government's English Assistant program for French majors can be used as a substitute. Please contact the French or Spanish Program Coordinator for information on these options.
Spanish and French majors who wish to learn more about the study abroad opportunities which satisfy degree requirements should first speak to the Spanish or French program coordinator. For general study abroad information, visit the International Education Center, located in the historic Bone House across from the Governor's Mansion, or click here.
