Special Foreign Language Programs
All Summer Session students have the opportunity to learn a foreign language. Fluency in a foreign language provides invaluable benefits to a student’s educational and professional development, and enriches their personal life as they travel the world.
Six-week foreign language programs in French, German, Greek, Italian, Latin, and Spanish are available during Sessions A and B, with some offered in an intensive format. Two specialized concentrated programs—the Columbia Arabic Summer Program and the Russian Practicum—run during Sessions G, H, J, and R in condensed four-week sessions. And since learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door, students of these foreign language programs will also partake in cultural enrichment activities to enhance their experience.
