Study Abroad



Students are encouraged to study abroad during their junior year, though another moment may be more suitable for certain students. We encourage students to investigate different options including summer study and full-year study periods. Learn more.


The Italian program, aware of the importance of international study and experience, aims to assist its students in taking advantage of the growing opportunities for academic travel to Italy. Learn more.


MA and PHD candidates in French are eligible to spend and extended periods (usually one year) abroad through graduate student exchanges that our department maintains with the Université de Paris-X (Nanterre).

These programs permit students each year to work as lecteurs d’anglais and to take courses to improve skills or to conduct research while continuing to receive stipendiary support.
