Academic Program

Students complete a total of 100 contact hours per 4-week summer session. Though 45 contact hours generally equate to three semester credits, students are cautioned that U.S. universities may award fewer credits for each Spanish course than the high number of contact hours may suggest. NOTE: The Summer 3 option can only be combined with the Summer 1&2 or Summer 2 programs. Summer 3 is not available as a stand-alone option.
