    The summer program in Valladolid, Spain, is mainly 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 four week program. The program includes visits to historical cities such as Salamanca and Segovia, visits to museums and castles (Coca and Penafiel), among others, and some social events such as a welcome reception and a farewell dinner. 

    Program Costs & Financial Considerations

    During a summer program abroad, CSB/SJU students will pay the cost of the required 4 or 8 CSB/SJU credits at the reduced summer tuition rate. In addition, all students studying abroad will pay an Education Abroad Program Fee. Program Fee information will be available in September, but you can find more information about what is included on the CSB/SJU Global Portal.  

    Students should plan early for a successful study abroad experience. Financial aid and scholarships may be available to help with program costs, but must be searched out well in advance.   

    Accommodations

    Students stay 2 to a family with host families and are provided with 3 meals a day.
