Grand Valley urges all students to seek study-abroad experience. Foreign language majors and minors will make exceptional progress by combining study abroad with their formal course work on the home campus. Approved study experiences of varying lengths - summer, semester, or academic year - carry full academic credit for all participants, including non-majors. The majority of programs currently offered take place during the summer and are accompanied by a Grand Valley State University faculty member. Longer stays can be arranged, however, through Grand Valley's institutional ties with colleges and universities in virtually every major region of the world, including major business schools in Worms, Germany, and Angers, France.
