Study Abroad

Most ONU Modern Languages majors study abroad. Why?

Studying abroad is the most effective way to achieve proficiency in a foreign language. It allows participants to develop first-hand a deeper understanding of another culture, to grow in confidence and competence, and to make friends from around the globe. Studying abroad may also enhance your career opportunities by setting you apart from other job candidates (only 9% of U.S. undergraduates study abroad) in an increasingly globalized economy. Consider studying abroad today!
