Graduate Study Abroad

The MATL and Study Abroad

It is possible to study with a group going abroad from the University of Southern Mississippi or to study at approved institutions with faculty supervision independently (LACA programs). Please check with the Department Chair or Graduate Program Director for more information. 


Graduate Credit Abroad

Graduate students in the MATL or from other institutions who wish to study at a language institute can combine travel, study, and research for graduate credit (3-6 hours).  The French program supports learning opportunities at Langue-Onze in Toulouse or in Paris or Nice with France Langue. Spanish graduate students can study at the Summer Teacher Institute in Cadiz, Spain or in Costa Rica at Intercultura Language School near San José.

For the LACA programs, students travel on their own to the school and take language courses, in addition to conducting work on a specific research project for a total of 3-6 hours of graduate study transfer work. For the programs in Cadiz, Spain or in Costa Rica an instructor from the university will be on site to supervise the students' program of studies. Please contact the Graduate Program Director for more information about these possibilities.
