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. Please check with the Department Chair or Graduate Program Director for more information about Spanish and Dr. Joanne Burnett or Dr. Katie Angus for possibilities in French. 


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 in Paris. Spanish graduate students can study at the Summer Teacher Institute in Cadiz, Spain. 

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 an instructor from the university will be on site to supervise the students' program of studies.
