ASC in Spain
Agnes Scott College offers an intensive summer language program at the University of Oviedo in northern Spain. The Program is open to eligible students who complete one year of college-level Spanish (i.e., SPA 102) by departure date and remain in good academic and residential standing. All participants must also enroll in SPA 206 ("Spanish Culture in Spain") for the spring semester.
Under the guidance of Resident Director and Professor of Spanish Dr. Michael Schlig, participants will begin their experience with an orientation and four-day stay in Madrid before transferring to the city of Oviedo. There, students will live with local families and complete 80 hours of coursework in Spanish language and, if appropriate, history, literature and art. The Itinerary and Homestay pages have more more information.
Upon successful completion of all aspects of the Program, participants will receive six Agnes Scott credits in Spanish. Intermediate coursework satisfies Agnes Scott’s foreign language requirement, and credits from more advanced coursework may be applied towards completion of a major or minor in Spanish. See the Academics page for important details.
2014 Fee: $4,495.00
(The number of enrolled participants, exchange rates, and local provider costs will determine the final 2014 fee.)
Students admitted to the program are eligible for financial support from the college. Students who are eligible for the Agnes Advantage Award may apply their funds to expenses related to study abroad following their fourth semester of residency at Agnes Scott. Students who do not receive the Agnes Advantage Award are eligible for a one-time subsidy of $1500.00.
