Department of Modern Languages Study Abroad Programs

"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." Mark Twain

Welcome to our World of study abroad!

The Department of Modern Languages is the University’s unrivaled champion in providing our students with unique and meaningful experiences abroad. With over 20 study abroad programs offered in just the last 5 years, we have served well over 100 FHSU students in becoming truly world-ready! We are particularly proud to say that every single faculty member in our Department is not only an experienced world traveler with passion for cultural exploration, but we all have lived and studied in different countries. Plus, all of us have been directly engaged in the realm of study abroad at FHSU.

From service learning in Perú to cultural studies in Spain, from riding camels in Morocco to making the Eiffel-Tower-dream come true in France, from traversing centuries of history in Germany to ethnic studies and marine life exploration in Chile: we know our students, we listen to their wants and needs, and – together – we explore the World!

Our commitment to providing our students with the best experiences abroad goes far beyond the doors of our Department: the overwhelming majority of our programs are offered not exclusively to our majors, but to all FHSU students. We invite you to explore the opportunities abroad offered by our Department.
