Professors Dr. Scott Cohen and Dr. Christine Vonder Haar will be hosting a study abroad trip this summer to Spain from July 4th to August 5th. Experience the beauty, music and culture of Spain in the world’s third oldest universities: The University of Salamanca! Established in 1218, it is located in one of the most beautiful and historic medieval cities in Europe. Students will learn about the various styles of music found in the various subcultures throughout Spain. Students will express their experiences and knowledge of life and culture in Spain through a variety of writing activities. In addition to Salamanca, there will be day and weekend excursion possibilities to other regions in Spain, including Valencia.
Two 3 credit courses will be offered: MUSI 232 Music and Culture and ENGL 250 English 2. In Music 232, students will learn about the various styles of music found in the various subcultures through Spain. In English 250, students will express their knowledge of life and culture in Spain through a variety of writing activities. No knowledge of the Spanish language is required, as the two required courses are Ferris courses taught in English by Ferris professors. The estimated cost for the trip is $6300 including tuition (6 credits), airfare, travel insurance and in-country program expenses. Other expenses such as some meals or other personal expenses may not be included. Only 12 spots are open for this trip so make sure to apply soon! Applications can be found in the Study Abroad Office in the Office of International Education in the IRC behind Starbucks.
