Studying abroad is an integral and highly rewarding component of learning a language well, and RLL majors and minors are strongly encouraged to study abroad through an approved program.
The department runs a summer program in Salamanca, Spain in conjunction with Buffalo State College. Options for a new semester- or academic year-long program at the University of Seville will be coming on line soon. Please stay tuned.
Graduate Teaching Assistants have the exciting opportunity to teach overseas through exchange programs in either Lausanne, Switzerland or Paris, France. Exchange students perfect language skills, conduct research or perform fieldwork for a future dissertation grant, all while gaining valuable real-world experience and developing cross-cultural fluency.
Before going on a study abroad program for major or minor credit, undergraduate students are required to meet with an RLL Academic Advisor in the appropriate language. Please make an appointment and bring a proposed study abroad course syllabi to the appointment for pre-approval.
When students return, they must make an additional appointment with an RLL Academic Advisor. This will ensure the courses can be appropriately articulated to count towards the major or minor.
