Study Abroad with the Department of Modern Languages

The Department of Modern Languages offers faculty-led study abroad programs that concentrate on target language acquisition and cultural enhancement. Each of the six languages we teach either has an OHIO program or the DML can help you link with a comparable program through the Office of Global Opportunities.

Professors in our department advise and/or accompany students to destinations around the globe for long-term and short-term programs varying from 4 weeks to a semester. During residence abroad, students explore the culture of another part of the world, adding tremendous depth to their academic preparation.  Through daily life and course work, participants learn about the everyday habits, history, literature, economics, art, political system, and international relations of the region. Students return from study abroad with an expanded perspective on the world, on their country, on their community, and on themselves.

Feel free to stop by the Study Abroad Fair (Fall semester). You can see pictures here.
