Program Description:
Cadiz Collage

Cádiz is a small city of about 160,000 inhabitants situated on the southernmost coast of Spain. Recognized as the oldest city in Spain, Cádiz 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 and beautiful beaches, which makes it an inviting place for visitors and students.

Program Description:
The Cádiz
 program begins in Madrid, the capital of Spain. Excursions during the program may include trips to Granada and Sevilla as well as local field trips in Cádiz. These excursions will allow students to experience the vibrant culture, history, and tradition that flourish in Spain, while encouraging immersion in the Spanish language and the Cádiz community.

Students in the Cádiz 2016 summer program will take courses in Spanish language and culture and complete 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.

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

Course Information:
Students will earn 8 credits through the Cádiz summer program. Enrollment in language courses is dependent on prior knowledge. Summer 2016 courses are:
  • HISP 300: Intermediate/Advanced Spanish Language and Culture (3 credits)
  • HISP 386: Independent Research Project (3 credits)
  • HISP 392/GBST 390: History of Art in Andalucia (2 credits)
There is a required 1 credit course to be taken in Spring 2016, which you will be registered for following program acceptance.
