The majority of courses, in a variety of fields, are given in the Spanish language. To help prepare students for this, we offer Spanish language classes during the summer for all levels and beginner to upper-intermediate level classes at the beginning of each semester. Students may opt to add an internship to complement their study abroad experience. There are also a select number of courses in limited fields given in English. See list of courses in English here
