Bates Fall Semester Abroad
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.
