The International Center can provide assistance to students interested in faculty-led programs and semester-long exchanges, as well as any of the other options mentioned above. For more information, please contact study abroad advisor Lauren Hodge.
Prior to enrolling in study abroad experiences, students must consult with all of the following:
Students who intend to do foreign language coursework abroad, or to take literature or culture courses that they would like to apply to UNF programs of study in foreign languages (the minor in Chinese, French or Spanish, or the majors in French Studies and Spanish) or International Studies must contact Patricia Geesey, chair of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, prior to making such arrangements. Students seeking to receive academic credit at UNF for language coursework completed abroad should be aware that such credit can only be earned through coursework undertaken at (or through) universities or other institutions of higher learning, in the US or abroad, that can provide an academic transcript. Credit cannot be awarded for courses taken at language schools or academies, including those run by governmental entities.
Students should be aware that when pursuing language study at many non-UNF programs abroad, they will be asked to take a placement test upon arrival. If a student places at a lower level than they anticipated, they may be placed into courses that do not match those mapped out prior to departure on the concurrent enrollment/use of credits form. This may, in turn, impact how courses are brought back as transfer credits and counted (or not counted) toward requirements for major or minor programs of study at UNF.
*Does not apply to students participating in the summer programs in China, France and Spain led by faculty from the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.
