Iberian Studies Program (Summer)

Summer in Spain

Seville and Salamanca, Spain
Seville was once the largest city in all of Spain, a key city of Islamic Al-Andalus and of medieval Castile, and later the primary port which connected Spain with its American colonies. Even today the culture and the language spoken in the city recall those connections. Many aspects of the culture of Seville are among the most celebrated of Spain, such as Flamenco dance/music, bullfighting and "tapas". In contrast, Salamanca is the "Oxford" or "Cambridge" of the Hispanic world. The Universidad de Salamanca was founded in the year 1218 and retains a worldwide reputation in Spanish language teaching and Hispanic studies. Its 40,000 Spanish, European and Latin American students make Salamanca a very young city with a wide offering of cultural activities (theater, concerts, art exhibitions, local festivals) and an active social life for students and non-students alike.

This program, hosted by the Department of Spanish and Portuguese, is open to all interested students: Spanish majors & minors as well as students interested in developing their proficiency in Spanish and knowledge of Hispanic culture.
