A summer or semester of study abroad is strongly recommended for students to obtain a greater proficiency level in Spanish, particularly for the development of oral skills. Consult the undergraduate academic advisor for a list of suggested programs. Third-year students may study abroad in an affiliate, reciprocal or in a TTU faculty-led study abroad program. Fourth-year students may study abroad at the TTU Sevilla Center only.
