Academic Programs

The overall goal of each program is cultural and linguistic immersion. Classes are small and taught in Spanish by experienced Mexican professors. The curriculum for all classes integrates cultural and historical content and teachers often take students off campus to visit historically or architecturally significant sites. Qualified faculty from an OUS institution serve as the program Resident Director. The 16-week fall Mexican Studies program, held at the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro, provides an additional option for the study of Mexican culture. The UAQ also hosts the spring term Intensive Spanish program and one or more of the summer sessions.

On-Site Support

The on-site program coordination is managed by the Coordinator for Incoming International Students at the Facultad de Lenguas y Letras of the Universidad Autónoma de Querétaro (UAQ). The on-site coordinator is responsible for home-stay placements, coordination of field trip transportation and lodging, academic schedules and some extracurricular activities. In summer sessions the program Resident Directors (from Oregon intuitions) work closely with the on-site coordinator and staff of the Facultad de Lenguas y Letras to oversee all aspects of the program and to assist students and achieve program goals.
