Illinois State professors are highly qualified instructors who will give you a diverse education here on campus. Yet nothing can replace living and studying in a country where one listens to and speaks the language in all situations.
The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (LAN) strongly advises LAN students to choose a program from the list below. In most cases they have "prearticulated" courses, meaning students know in advance which courses abroad will count for which courses at Illinois State. The LAN advisor can guide students towards pre-articulated courses that will fulfill major and minor requirements.
There are many other destinations available through Study Abroad in the Office of International Studies and Programs. However, LAN faculty cannot feasibly pre-articulate courses for every destination.
