UC Davis Study Abroad
International experience is becoming more critical for all fields of study, and Spanish is no exception. As the world gets more and more globalized, the ability to tackle societal problems cross-culturally will continue to become increasingly important.
Studying abroad as a student in the college of Letters and Science is both possible and encouraged. Many different opportunities exist - from short, 2-week seminars in Europe to full, year-long immersion opportunities to foreign universities all over the globe. The key is to start early and plan ahead! Financial Aid goes with you and your SPA advisor (along with advisors at Study Abroad) are here to help you make it happen.
For information about study abroad options, stop by the UC Davis Study Abroad Office located at International Center, Suite 1120, Davis, CA 95616 or visit their homepage: http://studyabroad.ucdavis.edu.
