The goal of this program is to provide beginning-level students with a solid foundation in the Spanish language. The program allows participants to improve language skills while pursuing studies focusing on Spanish and Europe through topics such as history, art history, political science, and international business. This goal is achieved through intensive language coursework, area studies courses in English, a conversation exchange program, excursions, and homestays for participants.
