For those wishing to experience the culture abroad, the Spanish program faculty strongly encourages majors and minors to participate in approved study abroad programs throughout the Hispanic world. Students receive individualized study abroad advising as well as scholarship support.
Please, note that a maximum of 22 quarter hours of transfer credit from other institutions may be allowed toward major requirements and a maximum of 12 toward the Minor.
The procedure to study abroad is as follows:
1) Identify a site where you want to study. In order to do this, you should visit the Study Abroad Office for advice and information.
2) Meet with the Spanish section Study Abroad Advisor for your area of interest to discuss the selection of classes to be taken abroad. Make sure that your courses have been approved by your Spanish section Study Abroad Advisor before you leave the U.S.
3) If you are already abroad and have not had your classes approved by the study abroad advisor please e-mail your advisor immediately.
Note for students going to Spain:
Salamanca and Granada are two wonderful cities with excellent universities. Nevertheless, there is a very large number of international students in both cities, making it difficult for our students who study in these places to interact with and get to know Spaniards.
For that reason, the Spanish section recommends Spanish majors and minors to go to
either the Universidad de Alicante or the UIMP in Santander. Both are also well-known
and highly-regarded institutions, with much smaller numbers of American and international
