Students in the Cádiz 2014 summer program will earn a total of 8 Hispanic Studies credits,  through Spanish language and culture courses and 3 through independent, on-site research. Classes with University of Cádiz professors include the study of language, cultural history, and the history of art in Andalucia. Students will also complete an independent research project under the supervision of W&M’s Program Director, Dr. Carla Buck, Professor of Hispanic Studies.

Throughout the program students live with Spanish families in Cádiz, the oldest city in Western Europe. This homestay includes all meals, and allows students to become more fully immersed in local culture and traditions.

 
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2014, which you will be registered for following your acceptance into the program. This course is designed to help you prepare your research project proposal and is intended to enhance your cross-cultural understanding of Cadiz and to cover a variety of pre-departure questions.
 
 
Cádiz is a small city of about 160,000 inhabitants situated on the southernmost coast of Spain. It is renowned for its flamenco music, historic role as the seat of 19th century Spain’s original Parliament, and the site of Julius Caesar’s first public office. The city preserves the legacy of the different cultures that have populated it with numerous monuments, museums, plazas and charming, narrow streets. It is also known for the traditional hospitality of its people, which makes it an inviting place for students.
