A limited number of scholarships will be available on a competitive basis to matriculated CCSU students with a GPA of at least 2.50 who are registered for at least one of the academic courses associated with this program.
Spanish on the Move is a program offered by the Department of Modern Languages, which allows students to enhance their language proficiency and culture knowledge through dynamic intensive courses in an immersion setting.
Students enrolled in any of these six-credit courses will travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina. Over the course of two weeks, students will partially fulfill course requirements while benefiting from the enriching surroundings of this extraordinary city. Buenos Aires is a lively and cosmopolitan city with a population of approximately 14 million people, most of them of Spanish and Italian descent. Located in the western shore of the River Plate, Buenos Aires is known for the sophistication of its architecture and unique outdoor markets, its tango music and dance, its rich literary tradition that includes 20th century authors like Julio Cortázar, Jorge Luis Borges or Ernesto Sábato, the distinctiveness of its neighborhoods (Recoleta, La Boca, San Telmo, Boedo, Puerto Madero, etc.), its soccer tradition, and its gastronomy.
Students with two years of college level Spanish may register for Span 225 and 226, two three- credit courses created to develop speaking, writing and reading skills at the high intermediate levels. Students who have taken CCSU Span 226 may enroll in the two sections of ML 400.
These courses will be taught by Professors Mejia and Uribe, from CCSU, and by Argentinean guess lecturers. It will have three main components: Grammar, Conversation, and Culture. Class sessions will take place on the CCSU campus during the week prior to the travel program (tentative: May 16- June 22, 2014). The travel component will tentatively take place May 23- June 8, 2014. We will resume classes on the CCSU campus after return from Argentina.
