What is Spanish Studies?

Spanish Studies Abroad has been providing unique learning experiences in Spanish-speaking countries across the world since 1969.

Since our first programs launched in Seville (Spain), we have expanded to provide programs in Alicante and Barcelona; Córdoba, Argentina; San Juan, Puerto Rico and Havana, Cuba.

There are programs available for specific terms, or combine them to spend your whole academic year abroad. And don’t worry – you don’t need to be a pro-Spanish speaker to apply.

We invite you to expand your world-view through immersion in these fascinating cities. With a strong dedication to academic integrity and an emphasis on your personal growth, Spanish Studies has developed a reputation for superior quality and unique experiences.
