Looking for an exciting way to see the world while studying Literature as well? Then spending a school semester study abroad is the prefect choice for you. Here is the list of countries you should consider when thinking about studying Literature abroad.
Each year on September 8, the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization encourages us to honor literacy through International Literacy Day. Known as UNESCO to most travelers, many of us have visited destinations around the world which have been preserved for their cultural or natural significance. There are over 1000 such UNESCO World Heritage Sites around the world, including well-known ones like the Taj Mahal in India and lesser-known destinations like the Bay and Old Town of Kotor, Montenegro.
UNESCO also honors sites for other reason, including some as Cities of Literature. These cities have an important heritage in encouraging literacy around the world, and some are great destinations to study abroad. If you want to help understand the significance of literature and improve literacy later in your career, consider one of these cities and study abroad programs based there.
