Program Description

The summer program in Valladolid, Spain, is mainly, although not solely, intended for students who are looking to fulfill their language requirement while completely immersing in the Spanish culture. Participants live with Spanish families for the entire duration of the five week program. The program is also intended for students who are thinking about majoring or pursuing a minor in Spanish. It provides a great opportunity to develop their language skills to an appropriate level for advanced Spanish courses. The program includes visit to historical cities such as Salamanca and Segovia; visit to museums and castles (Coca and Peñafiel), among others, and some social events such as a welcome reception and a farewell dinner.

This program offers the following courses during both sessions:

  • 200 Intensive Intermediate Spanish I (8 credits)
    • This course shall cover the thematic and linguistic content of Spanish 112 and 211. Completion of this course fulfills the core language requirement.
  • 211 Intermediate Spanish (4 credits)
    • Completion of this course fulfills the core language requirement.
