Program Description:

As an enhancement to its Spanish Language curriculum, the College of Arts and Humanities has developed a study abroad program for students interested in a Spanish Language and Culture program in the quaint city of Nerja, Spain, which is located in southern Spain on the Mediterranean Sea.

This program offer students a unique opportunity for full linguistic and cultural immersion intended to develop their Spanish language skills. For this program, students have the opportunity of registering for SPN 3955 (prerequisite SPN 1121) OR IDS 3955 (no prerequisite). Spanish language courses are offered at all levels of proficiency from beginning to advanced; placement is determined by a grammar test and an oral interview. 

The Spanish Language Program is hosted by the Escuela de Idiomas in Nerja, Spain. The language classes are taught by Escuela professors and the cultural activities are coordinated by Dr. Consuelo Stebbins.  Language classes are held Mon-Fri, averaging 20 hours a week for two weeks. The cultural activities include a variety of seminars on the history and culture of Spain and visits to local sites. An optional weekend trip to Morocco is offered during the first weekend. 

Students arrive in Malaga, Spain on Sunday and are transported to their Residence Hall in Nerja. Classes start on Monday.  To arrive on the starting day of this program, flights must depart the USA the day before the start of the program.  Students should not purchase their flights until after the applicants have been informed by Study Abroad to do so. Study Abroad advises that you book your flight directly with the airline.

Participants stay in the beautiful city of Nerja, Spain for the two week program. While abroad, students attend classes during the day and participate in activities during the evening.
