Whether your institution is interested in a short term or semester program, CEHS will work to help design a program which satisfies the specific preferences and study abroad goals you have set for your students. (The director of CEHS will visit your institution to meet with you to help design and organize the program you have in mind. The Center director also visits the campus to help with recruitment, and later to lend a hand with orientation.) A travelling program director from the guest institution is always welcome to participate in the program. In a very real sense, the program belongs to the guest college or university that chooses to have its program administered by CEHS, and academic credit would be issued by the guest institution.
CEHS, however, through its School of Record Agreement with Saint Francis College, Brooklyn, NY, can also grant credit for the classes offered in its programs. The fee for a transcript is $300.00.
Semester Program (103 days).
A semester program is ideal for students interested in deepening their training in Spanish language, history, literature and culture, yet CEHS can also design programs to attract students from a broader array of academic disciplines. Although most programs are designed to be taught in Spanish, if there is a preference for a class to be taught in English, or there is the desire to expose students with lower levels of language proficiency to study abroad, a hybrid program can be designed: that is, lower level Spanish language classes combined with upper-level content classes that may be taught in English.
Program faculty is local, and all have impeccable qualifications in the fields in which they teach. The Center welcomes universities that wish to have one of their own faculty members on site to teach one class, and to help supervise the program's activities.
Our Classic fall semester program, and its highlights.
This program is designed for Spanish majors and minors, but credit can also be earned in other academic areas.
