The WORLD is larger than you think...Study Abroad!

Study Abroad World and book

Immerse yourself in another culture and language.
The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Summer Study Abroad programs make it possible and affordable for students  to acquire knowledge and understanding of different world countries through the direct exposure of language, art and history.

The SpanPort Summer Study Abroad program is ideal for students who wish to experience speaking Portuguese and Spanish outside the classroom.


If your academic, athletic, or other curricular activities do not grant you the ability to study abroad during the academic year, the Spanish and Portuguese department offers three programs where students can take courses in literature, culture, and intensive language instruction during the summer semester. Students can choose either the Summer in Lisbon, Summer in Peru or Summer in Spain program, where they have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture and language of the country while earning from 3 to 9 credits.


Each program provides a varying level of immersion, optional and mandatory excursions, and service learning (Peru). To learn more about each program and their unique characteristics, please click on the links below.
