Oviedo 2008 students

Summer Study Abroad programs will be offered again next year in Oviedo, Spain, in Florence, Italy and in Quebec City, Canada. There is also the option for advanced French students to study in Avignon, France.

Each program gives students the chance to earn 6 credits in foreign language at any level (beginner through advanced), plus the experience of a lifetime! Deadline for the Quebec, Avignon, and Florence programs is April 1, 2009.

For applications or more information, see Dr. Blood for French summer study programs or Dr. Rocca for Italian summer study programs. For information on the Oviedo Program, see Dr. Serra.

During the year there are several Summer Study Abroad Information Sessions. One just took place (for all three abroad programs) on November 24. If you missed it, don’t worry, it is not too late. Contact one of the programs’ coordinators.
