Faculty & Advisor Information
Spanish Studies Abroad has been offering Spanish language and cultural immersion programs abroad since 1969.
Beginning with our program in Seville, Spain and expanding to Alicante and Barcelona in Spain, and beyond to South American destinations such as Havana, Cuba, Cordova and Patagonia in Argentina, and San Juan, Puerto Rico, Spanish Studies has developed a reputation for academic excellence and a commitment to students’ intellectual, cultural and personal growth. Spanish Studies Abroad brings this commitment to life through its cultural immersion program model, a strong and broad curriculum, small classes, and superior instructional staff.
Spanish Studies Abroad prides itself on bringing this high academic standard to all of its programs and partnerships.
As an established study abroad institution, we can provide our academic partnerships with a great deal of flexibility and quality according to an institutions specific needs.
Spanish Studies Abroad is one of the first study abroad providers to have completed the Forum on Education Abroad’s QUIP Review. By undergoing this process, we have demonstrated our conformity with the Forum’s “Standards of Good Practice.” We maintain a commitment to offering high quality programs in education abroad and to continuous assessment and improvement.
Spanish Studies Abroad organizes group site visits each year in an effort to offer our academic partners firsthand knowledge of program changes and additions. These visits are an orientation to the Spanish Studies Abroad programs, facilities, and staff, as well as the local cultures and surroundings. You will join a select group of faculty, advisors, and administrators as you travel through Spain or Cuba.
