Study Abroad

The Department of Romance Languages strongly encourages students to participate in one of the numerous Study Abroad programs that the UO offers through the Office of International Affairs. We believe that there is no better way to learn a language and its culture than the experience of being immersed in it.

The University of Oregon, through different institutions (AHA, OUS, CIEE, SIT), offers programs for the study of French, Italian and Spanish languages and cultures in several countries of Europe and Latin America, such as Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, France, Italy, Mexico, Peru, and Spain.

For additional information and to obtain applications for specific programs studying abroad, please contact Study Abroad Office at (541) 346-3206.

For questions about how study abroad credit applies to your major or minor, see your assigned advisor in Romance Languages.


Tips for selecting a Study Abroad Program

  • Before going abroad students should consult an appropriate language adviser about the selection of a program and the courses to be taken within that program.
  • Courses taken in which the readings or lectures or both are in English do not count toward the major, the minor, or the B.A. foreign language requirement.
  • Students in all University of Oregon overseas study programs enroll in courses with subject codes that are unique to individual programs. Special course numbers are reserved for overseas study.
  • The RL department offers scholarships to help students with their travel abroad for language learning and/or research projects. For more information, go to our Scholarships page.
