Internships & Study Abroad
Here's what one SIUC student said about study abroad at the Univeristy of Alcalá in Spain:
“It was the best experience I’ve had. It was something that I’m so happy I did. I was there for a month and I could have been there longer. There’s just so many opportunities and ways to push yourself outside of your comfort zone.”
There's no better way to improve your language skills, and immerse yourself in another culture, than studying or doing an internship abroad.
Students in the department have done study abroad in a wide range of countries, including Argentina, Spain, Greece, France, and Costa Rica. We are particularly excited about our new study abroad and internship programs with the university of Alcalá in Spain: follow up on the link to Spain to your left for more information.
All Foreign Language & International Trade students do an Internship Abroad as part of their program of study. For more information on FLIT internships, follow this link.
SIU students also benefit from a wealth of study abroad programs offered by the SIU Study Abroad Office.
