Formal study abroad is considered to be an intrinsic part of the language-learning process, and we actively encourage our students to participate in the variety of programs that are offered here at Berkeley. In Spain, Mexico, and Chile, there are “immersion” program options that are suitable for students who are fluent in Spanish. In Brazil, there are program options for students with no Portuguese, as well as for those who are fluent. EAP offers summer, semester, and classic full academic year immersion programs.
Three program types are available:
- Programs focusing on language acquisition
- Programs requiring a minimum of two years of university-level Spanish (through Spanish 4 at UCB)
- Programs with no language requirement – Brazil only.
Students are encouraged to research program options early on in their time at Cal by visiting the Berkeley Study Abroad office and website:
