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). Assistantships to work or teach on the Granada, Spain or Pontlevoy, France (Abbey Program) undergraduate semester programs may also be available. 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, France and on the French in France program in Paris or Nice with France Langue. Spanish graduate students can study on the Spanish in Spain program in Madrid with Enforex or in Costa Rica at Intercultura Language School near San José.
For the LACA programs such as in Toulouse, 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 Paris, Nice, Madrid or San José an instructor from the university will supervise the students' program of studies at a language school, in addition to directing a research project. Please contact the Graduate Program Director for more information about these possibilities.
