This January-term study abroad course will introduce students to the culture of a Spanish-speaking country first-hand. Course locations may include Peru, Dominican Republic, Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, Argentina and other countries where Spanish is an official language. In addition to language and culture instruction at a local institution, students will live with host families and participate in guided visits to sites that illustrate the diverse cultural history of the country. This course satisfies the immersion requirement for the Spanish minor. All interested students must complete an interview with the instructor prior to enrollment. May be repeated for credit up to three times in three different locations.
