Study Abroad in Spain this Summer Oct. 21
4:30 pm - 5:30 am
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
The Department of Modern Languages offers a summer study abroad program in Spain for Spanish students of all levels. It is a 6-credit, one-month Spanish immersion program in Valladolid, Spain. You have the choice of studying during either the month of June or the month of July. (There is also an option to study for both June and July and receive 12-credit hours!) While there you will live with a Spanish family and study at the University of Valladolid. In the evenings and on weekends, we take trips to cities such as Madrid, Ávila, Salamanca, Segovia, Santander, Leon and Burgos as well as an optional trip to Barcelona.

Participants in the program must have successfully completed two (2) semesters of college Spanish (Spanish 102 at UA).

If you have already completed Spanish 102, these credits may fulfill the Intermediate Spanish 201 and 202 General Education requirements.

If you have already completed Spanish 202, you will receive 6 credit-hours of 300-level Spanish electives that will go toward a Spanish Major or Minor. To minor in Spanish, you only need to take 4 courses after Intermediate 202. After studying for a month in Spain, you will only need to complete two more courses to have a minor in Spanish!

Click on this link to see a video made from one of our own UA Grads about last summer’s trip: https://vimeo.com/74942724 and click on this link to see our blog from previous years: http://dissta2013.weebly.com

Have questions? There will be an information meeting about the program on Monday, October 21st at 4:30, and also on Tuesday, October 29th at 5:00.

The University of Akron's Zipmail is a compilation of University announcements for University students, sent each Friday unless circumstances require otherwise. The deadline for submissions to be considered by the University is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday.

Zipmail is a University of Akron communication vehicle established for the benefit of The University of Akron to communicate with its students. Items will be accepted for publication only when the University is directly involved in the activity through participation, sponsorship, or partnership with one of its recognized organizations, colleges or departments. The University reserves the right to edit or to refuse to run any submission for any reason. Zipmail is not, nor is it intended to be, a public forum or a limited public forum. Questions about the implementation of this policy may be directed to zipmail@uakron.edu.

Items to be considered for inclusion in Zipmail should be sent through the Zipmail Event Submission Form. Due to the volume of submissions received, items will not run more than one time.

Questions about specific announcements should be made to the contact person/department/organization listed in the announcement.Your event will automatically be forwarded to the University's online calendar. The Zipmail Coordinator can be reached at x2837.
