Study Abroad 2014

Study Abroad 2014

Fátima Serra, World Languages and Cultures

The new SSU Core being implemented in 2015 has a World Cultures Requirement and the best way to fulfill it is by total immersion in a new culture abroad while learning a different language.

The World Languages and Cultures Department has great, affordable programs that will help you achieve this goal. A program abroad will also enhance your résumé and make you stand out when applying for a job or graduate school.

After all, studying abroad is an INVESTMENT. When you write your next CV, enhance your experience in a different country by pointing out the valuable skills your abroad studies contributed to your education:

  • Knowledge of other cultures
  • People skills and understanding of difference
  • Fluency in different languages
  • Ability to plan and execute additional studies in a challenging environment
  • Problem solving
  • System creator
  • Fast Paced Learner
  • Group worker

Go ahead and plan your study abroad with the World Languages and Cultures Department. You can choose semester and/or summer programs in Spain, Canada or Italy.

Special events this summer!!:
