At Jacksonville University, foreign language study is best described as a big adventure. Students take excursions (historic St. Augustine is just minutes away!), enjoy weekly “language tables” in the cafeteria, and engage in lively conversation hours in the lab. Our international Study Abroad program gives students a big edge, too, with total immersion in another culture such as Spain, France or Mexico. Students gain more than language proficiency—they come back with a global perspective.
With comprehensive programs in French or Spanish, students attain language fluency and tailor classes to their interests. From Flamenco dancing to French impressionism, you can explore till your heart’s content
At JU, we make sure nothing gets lost in translation. The difference is in the details such as daily opportunities for engaged learning and caring professors who know your name.
