Other Recommended Programs

Middlebury College Summer Immersion Program
Summer intensive
This program, offered by Middlebury College, Vermont, is not a study-abroad program, but their unique immersion environment, as represented by the Language Pledge, guarantees “studying-in-Japan-like” environment.

Japan-America Student Conference 
Summer Intensive and not a language program
Each summer, nearly 80 students from universities across Japan and the U.S. convene to discuss the hottest topics facing the two nations. The program alternates host countries each year, giving students the rare opportunity to travel abroad or through their home countries while learning about their culture through the eyes of others.

SPANISH

Students who are considering studying abroad are strongly encouraged to consult one of the professors in the Spanish program as well as the Office of International Education.

Students in the College of Education and Human Services (COEHS) who plan to teach a foreign language after graduation need to meet the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) requirement. These students will have to spend at least a month studying in a Spanish speaking country in order to complete this requirement.
