Other Opportunities

The Department recommends participating in one of the many study abroad programs offered by CU and other universities. Interested students should consult with the Arts and Sciences undergraduate advisor for Linguistics, Allison Sedey. Programs last from a few weeks to a full academic year, and offer opportunities to take language courses as well as linguistics courses. Since prior language study is a prerequisite for many programs, early planning for study abroad is essential. For more information, contact the Office of International Education.

Many of our undergraduate students in linguistics take advantage of the university’s study abroad program during their junior or senior years (and sometimes earlier). For information on studying abroad through CU Boulder, contact the OIE's Education Abroad office. Additional information regarding external programs specializing in study abroad (not necessarily endorsed by the University of Colorado) can be found here: Student’s Guide to Studying Abroad: Resources, Scholarships, Tips, and Tricks for your Learning Adventure.
