Students are highly encouraged to participate in study abroad opportunities offered through the department – including international exchange programs in China, Japan and Mexico and faculty-led educational trips, which have included trips to China, Costa Rica, Spain, Japan, Mexico, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. The department also sponsors Chinese, Japanese and Spanish language clubs for students to further explore a new language and culture, participate in activities and events, interact with native speakers, and build a sense of community among those with similar interests. The comprehensive curriculum combined with the immersive study abroad learning experiences provides graduates of the program with an advanced fluency and understanding of language to excel in a variety of fields ranging from business and communications to education and government.
