Seeing students succeed in their Chinese studies is one of the most rewarding things in the world. God has anointed me through my students—they are inquisitive, hard-working and incredibly creative. I come out of every class feeling energized.
Northwestern encourages students to cross borders to impact the world. The Department of World Languages has a variety of opportunities for students to study abroad, participate in language clubs, view bilingual theater performances, and much more.
Spanish majors study abroad with programs like Semester in Spain in Seville or the Students International program in Costa Rica.
Any Northwestern student can study abroad through programs sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
