Summer in Salamanca
This degree program is designed to provide Spanish graduate students in general and current in-service teachers of Spanish in particular with graduate-level coursework in Spanish language, and Hispanic literature and cultures.
The unique conception of this degree will offer students the opportunity to use the academic resources of two universities --Central Connecticut State and Salamanca--, and the advantage of exchanging ideas with Spanish teachers and students from 5 other universities in the United States which, like CCSU, are part of a very exclusive Inter-University consortium.
Students enrolled in this program will take 9 credits in residence at the University of Salamanca during five weeks in the summer (typically July + 1 week in August) and 21 credits at CCSU in the Department of Modern Languages.
During their stay in Spain, participants will live in single rooms in student residence halls at the University of Salamanca, thus experiencing Spanish culture and student life firsthand.
Living and studying in a Spanish-speaking country while completing graduate degree requirements will yield enormous linguistic and cultural benefits for the students.
Unique features of this program
A qualitatively distinctive course of study, one designed from its inception to focus primarily on the needs of Spanish teachers for the timely completion of the degree both by means of regular courses available on the CCSU campus which are scheduled at convenient times for teachers, and by means of the intensive modules of summer study offered both at CCSU and at the University of Salamanca
A program that has as an integral part the linguistically and culturally valuable experience of living in a Spanish-speaking country while completing degree requirements
An innovative degree awarded by CCSU and obtained in collaboration with the University of Salamanca, lending it both international character and the distinctive imprimatur of one of Europe's oldest and most prestigious universities
