**Attention summer 2018 participants looking to secure summer flights: the dates listed on this website are accurate and give the day of departure and the day of return for each program.  Flights to Madrid from the US are overnight flights, so the arrival date is the following day; e.g. Cádiz 2018 participants depart May 10th with a May 11th arrival, with the return flight on June 25th (flight arrives same day).  Please reserve your flights accordingly.

UGA en España’s Valencia Spring 2018 program is on the ground!  After several days in Madrid and a trip to Toledo, the group has settled into Valencia and has begun classes on the campus of the University of Valencia.   Daytrips to Albarracín, Xátiva, Sagunto, and other historical sites across the Valencian Community punctuate the academic experience, as well as a long weekend excursion in Barcelona.  Later the students will experience Valencia’s surreal, week-long festival of Las Fallas.  Our students take 12 hours of SPAN courses at the Universitat de València (UV) and live in the very heart of the city in the Colegio Mayor Rector Peset, a UV residence hall providing daily contact with Spanish peers as well as international students from South America, the Middle East, Asia, and elsewhere in Europe.  Classes are taken on the UV campus from UV professors, with the courses counting directly toward UGA majors and minors (12 hours of SPAN credit). There is no better or more effective way to finish a minor--after taking SPAN 3010 at UGA, this program satisfies all the requirements of the Spanish minor--or to advance deep into a Spanish major. In addition to the academic content and the cultural excursions, the program offers a wealth of other extra-academic opportunities in Valencia proper.  If you might be interested in Valencia Spring 2019, please click on the 'Study Abroad Programs' and 'Valencia' tabs for more information. Information on online application can be found below and under the ‘Resources’ tab.Spring Semester in Valencia!

Now accepting applications.  Come spend summer 2018 in Spain!  UGA en España offers four different summer programs across Spain.  If you'd like to consider going abroad this summer with us, contact us directly at spain@uga.edu or spain2@uga.edu (additional contact info on this site).  UGA en España offers an intensive 4-week experience in Spain's premiere cities, Madrid and Barcelona; and three 7-week programs in Cádiz, Sevilla, and Valencia. Programs begin in Madrid and feature additional excursions to numerous sites in Spain, with daily activities included throughout the week.  Whether you prefer the beautiful seaside city of Valencia, the vivid colors and deep culture of Sevilla, the ocean-bound 'nearly an island' Cádiz, or the urban appeal of the Madrid-Barcelona program, UGA en España hopes you'll consider joining us for the summer of 2018.  For students with an interest in merging knowledge of the Spanish language with a focus on the medical professions, we also offer the Peru Medical Spanish program in Trujillo, Peru.  This program features a practicum with Peruvian medical professionals as well as considerable cultural and linguistic content in various locations in Peru.  We hope one of our programs meets your interests and needs.
