The Department of Romance Languages strongly encourages students to study abroad. We sponsor several of our own programs in different countries, but most of our students choose to transfer credit from among the thousands of other possible programs taking place throughout the Francophone and Hispanic world. If none of the programs listed below satisfy you, visit UC International Programs in Edwards 1 (third floor) for information on other programs.
Credit earned in university-sponsored study-abroad programs and accredited language schools is generally transferable to UC (and applicable to majors and minors). To make sure your credit will transfer, consult the Undergraduate Advisor before leaving.
For information on scholarships and grants for study abroad can be found on the International Programs website.
