Spanish Studies Abroad (CC-CS)

Spanish Studies Abroad (CC-CS) Study abroad and cultural travel programs in the Spanish-speaking world: Spain, Argentina, Cuba, and Puerto Rico For 50 years, Spanish Studies Abroad (CC-CS) has invited students to expand their world views through participating in short- and long-term, for credit academic programs in Spain, Argentina, Puerto Rico, and Cuba.
(16)

We design these programs for our more than 70 affiliate U.S. universities, and students from other institutions.

Mission: The mission of Spanish Studies Abroad is to promote our students’ in-depth understanding of Spanish-speaking countries through specifically designed and academically rigorous university-level and cultural travel programs. All of our students cross cultural boundaries to live as members of another culture and thus to learn about others as they learn about themselves. Diversity Statement: Spanish Studies Abroad believes that a diverse student body enriches each individual experience by guiding students to learn about others as they learn about themselves. In accordance with our mission to encourage our students to cross cultural boundaries, Spanish Studies Abroad promotes equal opportunities within our programs and does not discriminate on the basis of an individual's race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, physical ability, gender, sexual orientation, or other characteristics. We believe in educating students on cultural tolerance and sensitivity, acceptance of differences, inclusiveness, and how diversity is viewed in other cultures.

"Every day was a chance to experience something new. When I didn’t have class or an excursion I would explore Havana to new lengths either alone or with friends I’d made. There was so much to see that I’ll still have new experiences when I visit again. Studying in Havana gave me a different perspective on everything. From their politics to their rich history and culture, I learned so much that I didn’t know before." -Matt Eckler, Siena College

Are you wondering what it would be like to be a student in Havana, Cuba? Want to hear more alumni stories like this? Then head to the link below to register for our online forum next Wednesday, February 17th to chat with SSA staff and alumni who can give you the scoop on Havana. ¡Te esperamos!

Here is another winning picture from our 2020 Photo Contest, courtesy of Kaitlyn Galliher from Susquehanna University in Pennsylvania. She took this picture on the esplanade in Alicante, a pedestrian walkway lined with beautiful palm trees that runs parallel to the port.

“La Explanada de España” came up every time I researched Alicante in my trip preparation, and getting to walk down it for the first time with my host family was such a cool moment. I spent much of my free time hanging out here with friends, either walking the length of La Explanada and checking out the shops or sitting on one of the benches with a book.”

Whoever said that you can't have fun in the wintertime, they didn't go to Ushuaia with their study abroad pals!

Alumni from Córdoba, Argentina take advantage of their stay in the Southern Hemisphere by taking a group trip to southernmost tip of South America, nicknamed the “End of the World.” Popular activities in this seaside city include taking boat tours to neighboring islands to see seals and penguins, checking out all the quirky museums and hiking in the Tierra del Fuego National Park. You can even get your passport stamped with a little seal to prove that you've been to "the end of the world"!

"This was by far my favorite trip during my time abroad, as I was able to witness some of the most breathtaking sights with even more amazing people. I've truly never had a better time in 20 degree weather!" -Gizelle Campell, @elonuniversity

Danielle Franke reflects on her summer internship at Centro Médico Estación in Alicante, Spain:

“Throughout my time at this clinic, I improved my ability to comprehend and add to conversations in Spanish, and I learned many new Spanish medical terms. While I learned a lot in the Spanish classes I took in the U.S., being immersed in the language and surrounded by native speakers challenged me and allowed me to pick up more of the language in a short time.”

Although we won’t be offering internships in Spring 2021 programs, we WILL be offering •Spanish for the Health Professions• virtually during the winter term. Check the link to get more details!

“Spanish studies really helped get me out of my comfort zone. Compared to other programs SSA forces you to really be
involved in the Spanish culture on many ways. While other programs provided trips around the EU we took trips throughout Catalunya and learned their history. I was highly encouraged in program gatherings to speak as much Spanish as possible without feeling uncomfortable”

"The New Normal" - Many of you may be wondering, what does studying abroad in Spain look like right now? The University of Alicante shares photos of their Erasmus students (international students from Europe) this semester in Alicante. Fortunately, beautiful Mediterreanean weather means students can still enjoy a number of outdoor and socially-distanced activities in addition to their studies at the university.

To learn more about Covid protocols across all our sites for next semester, register for our next info session this Thursday (link to register: forms.gle/nfyZ5kDp2MMmt95r7). You'll hear from onsite staff on what to expect next semester while abroad and have the opportunity to ask questions.
