Language Program Options
Whether you’re a beginner language learner or fulfilling a graduate degree, our programs offer a range of options and opportunities.
1. Summer Language Immersion Programs
Make substantial proficiency gains in language and cultural proficiency over seven or eight weeks. Shorter programs are also offered in Abenaki, Hebrew, and Russian.
