Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad. Up to 12 credits from study abroad programs will be accepted for the major. Any language credits acquired from study abroad must not duplicate language credits acquired from classes taken at UWM.
UWM offers a wide range of study abroad opportunities with both UWM faculty led programs and also with partner universities in Japan. The UWM Center for International Education works closely with students to match them with an appropriate study abroad program, navigate the application process, identify potential financial aid sources, and become educated on travel logistics and requirements.
