The Department of World Languages and Cultures encourages students to participate in the following Study Abroad programs, during the summer or for one semester. Our students who have completed these programs have highly praised them and readily recommend them to other students.



The Department of World Languages and Cultures frequently offers an introductory Spanish course in Guatemala, paired with other University courses. This is a great way to learn the language in its cultural context.
