The World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures Department offers many study abroad opportunities throughout the year. Studying in another country - whether you are there for a few weeks, a semester, or a full year- is so much more than just being a tourist. Overseas study is an opportunity for you to gain valuable, first-hand experience that will both improve your chances of landing a job and greatly expand your career options.
As a major in the School of Arts and Sciences, you will have the opportunity to learn, for example, about the history, economy, ecology, music, politics, indigenous cultures, human rights, and legal systems of different countries. You will have the opportunity to share ideas with scientists, activists, and artists from around the world. Partner universities located in Chile, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Spain afford the possibility of perfecting language skills while experiencing the native culture. Meeting local students as well as students from other countries will give you a new and broader global perspective.
