It is highly recommended that students take an additional year of a second foreign language.
D. Travel-Study (6 hours minimum-12 hours maximum)
Majors must participate in a travel-study program in a foreign country so that the student may draw upon unique cultural and intellectual resources in the host country(ies) which will extend subject matter competence and develop language proficiency. Sensitivity to other cultures together with a new perspective on the American culture will contribute to the development of particular career interests. Although students may participate in any approved study-abroad program, it is strongly recommend that students take advantage of the many foreign-study opportunities available at UT Martin which may involve a summer, a semester, or a year. Note: Travel study programs are available through the academic departments.
