This unique program takes place in Santiago de Compostela, Galicia's enchanting capital in Northwestern Spain, a UNESCO heritage city and an ancient site of pilgrimage. Students will examine the culture of Galicia, a Celtic bridge to understanding the past and present of the Hispanic and Portuguese-speaking worlds. Culture class discussions will focus on the factors that have contributed to the making of the identity of Galicia in such areas as history, politics and society, traditions, mythology, music, and cinema. Language classes will provide either an introduction to Business and Legal Spanish, intensive oral practice in Spanish or Galician for Beginners. The program also includes several weekend excursions.
