A limited number of $500 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.


The Spanish on the Move is a program, offered by the Department of Modern Languages, allows students to continue their studies of Spanish through dynamic intensive courses in an immersion setting.

Students enrolled in any of the courses offered will travel to Spain, where they will be hosted by the University of Salamanca in the historical city of Salamanca.  Over the course of two weeks, students will partially fulfill course requirements while benefiting from the enriching surroundings of this extraordinary city.

Students with two years of college level Spanish may register for Span 225 and/or 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 one or  two sections of ML 400.

These courses will be taught by Professors Mejía and Uribe, from CCSU, and by art history teachers of the host Spanish university.  It will have three main components:  Grammar, Conversation, Spanish Literature and Culture.

Salamanca is one of the most interesting and beautiful cities in Spain, yet of manageable size.  Only two hours from Madrid, Salamanca has the magic of a medieval city, and it summarizes the history and art of Spain in its streets and architecture.  Nonetheless, it has as many modern attractions as any other mid-size Spanish city:  good restaurants, sports facilities and theaters.

Class sessions will take place on the CCSU campus during the week prior to the travel program, and upon return to the U.S.  The travel component will tentatively take place May 31 – June 15, 2013.
