Bates Fall Semester Abroad

FSA St. Petersburg 2013

FSA St. Petersburg 2013

The Bates Fall Semester Abroad (FSA) pro­grams pro­vide excel­lent oppor­tu­ni­ties to develop a for­eign lan­guage skill and to study abroad with Bates fac­ulty. In addi­tion to get­ting to know the fac­ulty, it is an oppor­tu­nity to study a theme with them that can carry through to a major.

Inten­sive lan­guage instruc­tion is a large part of each pro­gram. How­ever, since there are no pre­req­ui­sites, one can ini­ti­ate the study of a lan­guage, renew a high school lan­guage, or study a lan­guage at a more advanced level. The pro­grams are unique in that all classes, includ­ing first-years and sopho­mores, are wel­come to par­tic­i­pate. The fac­ulty lead­ing the pro­grams con­duct infor­ma­tion ses­sions dur­ing the year. The FSA program comprises a General Education Concentration.
