​Emory University of Salamanca Program

In this program, students of all levels, can study and experience immersion in Spanish language and culture during a full semester (Fall or Spring) or a full academic year (Fall + Spring). One year of high school Spanish or one semester of college Spanish is the minimum language requirement for participation in the program. Salamanca, located in west central Spain (just two hours from Madrid) is the “Oxford” or “Cambridge” of the Hispanic world. The Universidad de Salamanca, with which Emory collaborates, was founded in the year 1218 and is the oldest and most famous university in the Spanish-speaking world; it retains a worldwide reputation in Hispanic studies and Spanish language teaching. Its 40,000 Spanish, European and Latin American students make Salamanca a very young city with a wide offering of cultural activities (theater, concerts, art exhibitions, local festivals) and an active social life, which remains centered on its historic Plaza Mayor. The city’s central location within the Peninsula facilitates travel within the Peninsula, and the program includes several group excursions and weekly cultural activities (cinema, tapas, Historical monuments and others) along the semester. Destinations vary, but often include villages of Sierra de Francia (Salamanca), Segovia or Toledo, Andalucia (cities of Granada, Cordoba and Seville), Galicia (Santiago de Compostela) –in FALL-, Portugal (Lisbon) or Lanzarote (Canary Island) –in SPRING-.
