Program Overview This program's deadline has been changed to 03/13/2018.

Celebrate History! The University of Salamanca, Europe's first university, turns 800 years old!

Join us in one of the most historic cities of the European Renaissance. Walk the same halls as alumni Carmen Martin Gaite, Hernan Cortes, San Juan de la Cruz, Luis de Gongora, Adolfo Suarez, and Miguel de Unamuno (dean of the University just before the Spanish Civil war).

Courses are taught by UD and Salamanca faculty. All students enroll in either SPAN 355 or 455 (cross-listed and taught by the faculty director), and any one of the other courses offered at the University of Salamanca.

Courses taught at the University of Salamanca program use a particular method to achieve linguistic proficiency, which integrates grammar study with the topical course.

Classes run from July 2-July 27. The program will begin with a two-day stop in Madrid before the start of classes.

This program includes two weekend excursions to cities within the Iberian Peninsula (e.g. Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Lisbon, or Toledo), with lodging in hotels or at local universities.

The Program Fee includes housing (including laundry), most meals, Uni Salamanca fees, ground transportation in Spain, and international medical insurance. Students will live with Spanish families with whom they will be able to practice their language skills and gain insights into daily life. Breakfast and dinner are provided daily.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Madrid, Spain. Students will receive detailed travel instructions upon acceptance. Students will also be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.

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.
