Department of Modern Languages Study Abroad Programs

Saint Mary's College encourages foreign study as an essential part of a liberal arts education. The Department of Modern Languages regularly sends its majors, minors and other interested students to summer, semester or year-long programs in foreign countries; there is no better way to learn a language and culture than through the day-to-day experience of life in a foreign country.

The main programs sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages are located in

  • Angers, France;
  • Córdoba, Argentina;
  • Shanghai/Nanjing, China;
  • Ifrane, Morocco;
  • Innsbruck, Austria;
  • Rome, Italy; and
  • Seville, Spain.

In addition to our main programs, our students have studied in such cities as Angers, Paris, Grenoble, and Montpelier, France; Barcelona, Spain, and Mexico City, Mexico.

The resources of the Internet make it easier than ever for us to help you find a foreign-study program that fits your needs, time and budget. Consultation with your advisor is required before you go to make sure the program you are interested in offers courses at the appropriate level for you so that your credit will transfer back to Saint Mary's as part of your major or minor requirements, or your general education electives. The chance to study abroad is one you don't want to miss as part of your education at Saint Mary's College.
