Study Abroad

The Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures enthusiastically supports programs offered through the university's Study Abroad & Away Office. Students can choose from an exciting variety of options including faculty-led programs, exchange, and affiliate programs.

Students majoring or minoring in a foreign language are strongly urged to spend time, either during the Minimester, Summer, or academic (Fall/Spring) year, in a country where the chosen language is spoken.

The cost to participate varies from program to program, as do the services included. Federal financial aid is available as well as Study Abroad & Away scholarships. For more information, visit the TU Study Abroad & Away Office website.

All Language, Literatures & Cultures majors and minors must have their study abroad curriculum approved by their language adviser and the Department Chair prior to traveling abroad.

Students wishing to study abroad and earn credits in Spanish must :

  1. schedule an appointment with their language adviser to select a program and review its course offerings
  2. complete the Study Abroad & Away Course Form and submit it to the Department of Languages, Literatures & Cultures by November 20th (for Minimester or Spring) or April 19th (for Summer or Fall). Courses not approved by the deadline will be reviewed upon the student’s return and will require the Study Abroad & Away Course Form, syllabi, and all coursework completed abroad.
