Spain Study Abroad Spokane

Salamanca, Spain

Salamanca, with its narrow cobblestone streets, golden medieval buildings, soaring cathedrals and enchanting plazas, invites the traveler to explore its language, people, history and culture.

The lovely color of its buildings has earned Salamanca one of its nicknames: "la ciudad dorada" (the golden city). Salamanca is also the location of one of the oldest univesrities in Europe, thus its second nickname: "the Oxford of Spain."

In CCS's study abroad program, participants spend two to three weeks in the summer in this beautiful and historic city, improving Spanish proficiency while experiencing the Spanish culture. No previous experience with Spanish is necessary. Students are placed with a Spanish host family with private rooms with  meals provided.

On weekdays, students take classes during the morning and have afternoons free to study or explore the city. On Saturdays and Sundays, students can take optional full-day excursions to historical/cultural sites in nearby cities for about $35 dollars each or travel on their own.

Students will be accompanied by CCS faculty and will earn up to 7 credits in Spanish.
