Study in Spain Semester in Spain

Study abroad in the beautiful and historic city of Salamanca, Spain taking courses taught by American Presidency Project Co-Director Gerhard Peters. Courses offered by Professor Peters include American Politics, International Relations, Comparative Politics (with emphasis in European Union and Spanish politics), and Political Theory. In addition, students will take courses in Spanish Civilization and Culture and Spanish language courses. Additional courses are offered in the Speech department. Distance Education courses are also available for students wishing to complete elective requirements. Classes are offered through Citrus College as the lead school in the Southern California Consortium of colleges while the program is administered by AIFS, a leader in study abroad programs since 1964.

All courses are applicable to degree programs and fully transferable to California State University and University of California schools, and are accepted for credit toward degrees at most private and out-of-state public universities.

Why Study in Spain?
Study abroad can be an enlightening, maturing and life-changing experience. As students live in and learn to understand a different culture, they are challenged to re-examine themselves, their attitudes and their studies. Salamanca, due to its rich historic, artistic and cultural heritage, is considered one of Spain's most important cities. The mark of civilizations, some of which pre-date the Romans, can be found throughout the city. Many important historical figures passed through Salamanca: the duke of Alba, Meléndez Valdés, Unamuno, Columbus, Cervantes, and the Conde-duque de Olivares. In the field of Art, all the styles have left their most worthy and exquisite mark on this city. The Spanish Plateresque style, of decorative quality and fine execution, offers its most beautiful examples in Salamanca. The University of Salamanca, founded in 1218, is one of the oldest and most renowned in Europe. Salamanca was awarded Heritage of Mankind by UNESCO and in 2002 the city was declared European Capital of Culture.

One of the advantages of our study abroad program is that it is significantly less expensive than programs offered through most other colleges.
