Salamanca is home to Spain's oldest unversity and also what is generally accepted as the country's most beautiful Plaza Mayor. Located in the western part of the country near the border with Portugal, the city is known for its well-preserved historic center, its hearty castellano cooking (including wonderful cheeses and delicious Serrano ham), as well as for its sizeable student population. Not only does its university attract students from all over Spain, but also students from all over the world, who come to study Spanish language and culture there.


 The Summer Study in Spain is ideal for students who wish to experience speaking Spanish while integrating in a culture known for its excellent food, art, Flamenco dance and bullfights. Travel to Madrid, Salamanca, Granada, Barcelona and other gorgeous cities while improving your linguistic skills.

The Salamanca program offers a 5-week session through a wide selection of academic courses. Language instruction is in Spanish and designed for students at all levels. Students will be required to take a placement exam upon arrival at the University of Salamanca.

All students must meet with the Undergraduate Director, Dr. Otero-Torres, to discuss course selection while abroad.
