Academic Program

Mountains in Spain

The University of Cantabria offers OUS students a unique opportunity to devote a term (10 weeks) to intensive Spanish language learning and culture. Participants in this program will take classes at the Center for Languages at the University, an independent affiliate charged with the teaching of Spanish language to foreigners.

For this intensive language program all classes are taught in Spanish and offer study in the areas of grammar, writing, oral skills, reading and culture. As part of the culture class, students will take four field trips to various locations. Each participant should consult with his or her campus contact to determine how the language and culture credits will integrate with the home campus curriculum requirements before departure.

Registration and Credits

Students participating in this program will be registered at their home university in Oregon and will receive approximately 16 upper-division home campus Spanish credits for set courses taken at the University of Cantabria. Students’ course work will be reviewed and evaluated by appropriate academic departments at their home institutions.

Students are advised to consult with their academic advisor about their plans to study in the Santander, Spain language intensive program. Actual courses and credits are applied after completion of the program.
