Study Abroad

Clark offers several opportunities to study abroad in both foreign language and English language programs. We believe that studying abroad is an exciting opportunity to enrich and strengthen your Clark academic program, help perfect your language skills, and broaden your horizons.

Study abroad programs in a foreign language are offered in China, the Dominican Republic, France, Germany, Japan and Spain. Programs in English are offered in Australia, England, Scotland, Luxembourg, Namibia and Prague/Terezin.

Details about individual programs can be found at the Office of Study Abroad and Study Away Programs Web site or by contacting studyabroad@clarku.edu.

Programs in which students can earn four units of credit towards a foreign language major make majoring or double majoring more than feasible, provided that first and second year students start their planning and study of a foreign language early in the day. Thanks to the possibility of spending a semester, or even a year abroad, Clark students may reach the goal of graduating with proficiency in a second language. We believe this should be the goal of any student serious about study in an international field.

Clark offers a number of university-sponsored Study Abroad programs because we recognize the absolute necessity of experiencing a foreign culture as part of the language-learning process. For example, at the intermediate-language level, students of Spanish spend a semester at the Tandem Center in Madrid. Many return so enthusiastic about their semester in Spain that they arrange to take another semester abroad. At the upper level, students can select a program of studies at the University of Seville, where they can study history, government, and a variety of offerings in the Humanities. For study abroad in French, the Department enjoys a special exchange relationship with the University of Burgundy in Dijon, France. Our study abroad program at the University of Burgundy has been specifically designed to meet the needs of Clark students.
