Virtual Learning Exchange

Virtual Immersion & Acquisition @ MU

VIA@MU, based in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at Marquette University, facilitates collaborative, student-to-student learning in a multicultural and multinational setting through the use of videoconferencing. The project specifically addresses the department’s vision of promoting an understanding of the cultures and traditions which make up the fabric of our own society, as well as its goal of providing opportunities for successful communication in other languages.

Why Use VIA?

How Does VIA Work?

Vision

VIA program started in 2008 as a small, ground-up project to provide another resource for acquiring languages, but has grown to be a departmental program in which hundreds of Marquette students participate each semester in their French, Spanish, Arabic, and Italian classes.

The project specifically addresses the department’s vision of promoting and understanding of the cultures and traditions which make up the fabric of our own society.

What Students Say

“It gave me a taste of what it’s like to actually USE everything I’ve learned.”

“I can see my culture through the eyes of the rest of the world.”
