Program Notes
Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program for information about COVID-19 related travel requirements and policies for UD study abroad.

All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 10-13 weeks (3-4 months) to process a passport.


Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates. If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students.
Program Description
Delaware teachers are invited to participate in a two-week intensive immersion program in Cáceres, the capital of the Extremadura region of Spain. Increase your language proficiency, cultural knowledge, and intercultural competence while earning graduate credit in the magical medieval city of Cáceres. Participants can choose to earn three (3) credits or one (1) credit that will count towards an MA in Languages Literatures, Cultures, and Pedagogy. The one (1) credit option also earns participants 15 PD clock hours.


* if you are currently matriculated in an MA program in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, the reduced tuition rate of $773 per credit hour will be honored.

Participants should register with Professional and Continuing Studies: udel.edu/quickbio in order to proceed to the official application.
ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
