For Linguistics students, spending time interacting with other cultures, languages and linguistic styles is an essential component of the educational experience. The Department of Linguistics encourages students to seek out study abroad opportunities that suit their unique interests and goals, and offers the Wolfgang Wölck Student Travel Fund to assist with financial need.
Students pursuing degrees in Chinese, German, Japanese or Korean should speak with faculty about specific study abroad experiences designed for those language tracks.
Through this service-learning course, Linguistiscs students build language teaching experience either in the Buffalo public schools or at a public service agency, such as the International Institute of Buffalo, Herman Badillo Institute or Literacy Volunteers.
The Experiential Learning Center is a resource specifically for students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Undergraduate students may receive guidance from staff experts or simply use the space to research available internship, service-learning or study abroad opportunities.
