Study Abroad

Opportunities for study abroad are offered by the department. Some courses have a study abroad component, while others meet entirely outside of the United States.

There are study abroad opportunities to enhance the language learning experience --taught either entirely abroad or with a travelling component-- as well as experiential learning in classes that meet on campus.



The Department of Literature, Language, Writing, and Philosophy offers languages courses at all levels, taught in the target language, as well as a selection of literature and culture courses.
