There is no better way to learn a language than through a full immersion. Students who study a foreign language abroad can accomplish in one month what typically takes at least a full semester to learn in a normal classroom. All students who are serious about language acquisition should absolutely study abroad. Through its partners, MSUB offers long-term intensive language immersion programs in Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese. MSUB offers short-term summer language study in Germany and South Korea. All programs are credit bearing and thus, are eligible for financial aid and scholarships. In most cases, MSUB tuition and fees are waived for the program duration and actual program costs are applied.
