The department strongly encourages all students - majors, minors and language students - to consider study abroad. The opportunity to live and study in a foreign country provides students with an invaluable cultural experience and is the best and fastest way to improve your language skills. Even a short-term one-month program can really change your life and your ability to communicate in a foreign language.
Study abroad at Salem State University is coordinated through the Center for International Education. The Center for International Education's study abroad office, students can find other programs to study abroad for a summer, semester, or a full year in many different countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia. Extra financial aid is available for students to cover the costs of tuition, travel, room and board while studying abroad.
