Modern Languages and Literatures Study Abroad Opportunities

“Never hesitate to go far away, beyond all seas, all frontiers, all countries, all beliefs”
Amin Maalouf, Leo Africanus)

Study abroad is an integral part of the study of foreign language and literature, and students are highly encouraged to study in a non-English-speaking country for a summer, a semester, or a year.

Fordham in Granada (Spring)
A unique opportunity to learn Spanish culture in context. Classes--among them a course taught by Dr. Rafael Lamas--will be primarily taken at the Centro de Lenguas Modernas of the University of Granada in the lovely 16th-century palace of Santa Cruz.

Spanish Language in Granada (Summer)
Experience Granada, a place recognized as World Heritage Site by UNESCO and one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is the hometown of Federico Garcia Lorca, and a center of flamenco culture.

Fordham Athenaeum in Rome (Summer)
Experience the classic and modern lure of Italy’s capital city. The program offers art history and photography classes, and “Performing Italian,” a team-taught course by a professor of Italian and a professor of Theatre.

In addition to the programs in Granada and Rome, Fordham offers a broad variety of study abroad options in Europe (including Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain), Africa, the Far East, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Attention: Students who opt to apply study abroad credits toward their foreign language major or minor must have their courses approved by their major or minor language adviser prior to their going abroad.
