A period of residency of at least one month in a country where the target language is spoken is required for Spanish majors and for teaching certification in the major and the minor.

Up to 32 credits from an approved study abroad program may be transferred in to meet degree requirements for both the teaching and non-teaching majors; and up to six credits for the teaching and non-teaching minor.

Students who study abroad consistently cite the experience as one of the highlights of their university career. Not only does it bring about a greater sense of self-confidence, it also engenders an awareness of cultural difference, and builds skills for functioning effectively in our multicultural world.

Programs vary in length from a semester to two weeks. Students use the experience to meet general education requirements or towards major or minor programs. Financial aid can be applied to the cost of a program. See the study abroad office website for more information.
