Our department is well known throughout the University for its signature summer immersion programs, in which students have the opportunity to study in Italy, or China for six to eight weeks over the summer. Students can earn up to a semester's worth of foreign language credit while surrounding themselves with the culture of their host countries and forging indelible memories.

Study abroad is an opportunity that we encourage all of our students to pursue to further their exploration of their target language. Students, alumni, members of the community and students from other universities are welcome to join us on these exciting adventures, which include travel to famous historic sites and total immersion in the target language culture.

These affordable programs will improve your fluency in the most authentic and effective way. As many participants put it: "This is a life-changing experience!"
