Program Description

DLLC Summer Study Program in Spain

This program is meant to satisfy the academic needs of our students of Spanish, especially Spanish minors and majors, while providing a significant and direct experience of living and traveling in one of the most relevant Spanish speaking countries. It offers students the possibility to enroll in one conversation course and one Spanish elective class in culture at the 2000, 3000 and 4000 levels for a total of six (6) credits. These courses, the excursions, the out-of-classroom cultural activities, and the lodging arrangements with selected Spanish families in Madrid, are planned in order to develop a personal experience with the Spanish culture and history, and to improve the students abilities to interact in the Spanish language. The program has been successfully running for decades.
