Active student clubs exist for Italian, Spanish, and the Germanic and Slavic languages. These groups create relevant cultural experiences such as dinners, lectures, and holiday celebrations.
Travel Study and Study Abroad
Department’s professors often lead short (7 to 10 day) travel study trips to various language destinations. Students who wish to earn language credit and practical experience are encouraged to arrange a semester or a year abroad through the University’s Multicultural and International Center. La Salle maintains direct academic relationships with universities in Mexico City, Dublin, and Rome. Students may also submit credits earned through study abroad programs sponsored by any accredited university. The Joseph Moran travel grant is available for those who wish to study in Spain.
Undergraduates in good academic standing may begin a research project under the auspices of the University’s Undergraduate Research Program. A number of students have earned the prestigious Fulbright grant to fund their research.
Foreign Language Symposium
The annual Undergraduate Foreign Language Symposium allows students to present their research, both guided and independent, to their peers. The full day event is held a multi-media lecture hall and is sponsored by a grant from the Dean of Arts and Sciences.
