The Salamanca Immersion Program is for students interested in studying Spanish language and culture at one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious universities. Students go as a group in the fall and/or spring semesters. No particular major is required for eligibility. Students are normally of sophomore, junior, or senior standing and must have completed one course beyond SPA 212 or SPA 213.
Students typically take 4-6 courses during the semester. SPA 301 is required. Students may choose to do an internship (SPA 199). SPA 301 and SPA 199 are Pass/Fail and do not count towards a Spanish major or minor. The program includes 2-3 weeks of travel to cities of cultural and historical interest. Students typically live with host families.
Courses in the Spanish major/minor that are offered every semester include:
|SPA 309||Grammar and Composition||4|
|SPA 313||Lights, Camera, ¡Acción!. Cinema and Culture in the Spanish-Speaking World||3|
|SPA 315||The Making of Spain: Interdisciplinary Approaches to the Cultures of Spain||3|
