Spanish Study Abroad Program

The Study Abroad Program offers Spanish students an ideal opportunity to progress more quickly in Spanish while immersing themselves in Hispanic cultures.

Advanced Program for Majors and Minors

The Department of Spanish has several affiliations with the following programs:

  • Argentina, in Buenos Aires (IFSA-Butler)
  • Chile, in Santiago and Valparaíso (IFSA-Butler)
  • Costa Rica (IFSA-Butler)
  • Cuba (IFSA-Butler)
  • Peru (IFSA-Butler)
  • Mexico, in Mérida and Yucatán (IFSA-Butler)
  • Spain, in Salamanca and Madrid (IES)

Important: Students can also complete their study abroad requirements, and count courses for their Spanish Major or Minor, through the SIT-affiliated locations across Latin America. To do this, students must complete Spanish 301 (or Spanish 302) on campus, and discuss their course selection plan with the Spanish Department chair, before going abroad.

Note: The Spanish Department strongly recommends that students take at least one course at a local university during their semester abroad.

The Spanish Department, which requires all majors to study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country, offers an alternative to study off-campus for DACA students.

Students enrolled in these programs can take courses in the IFSA-Butler and IES institutions, as well as enroll in top tier universities.
