Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Quarter

  • 200 contact hours per quarter
  • 20 quarter credits • 12-13 semester credits

Academic Year Option 1

  • 380 contact hours per quarter
  • 38 quarter credits • 25 semester credits

Academic Year Option 2

This program is ideal for students who would like to improve their communication and grammar skills, while also taking culture courses in addition to their language studies. Beginning level students focus on developing their oral and written proficiency and all courses relate to language study. Intermediate, advanced and superior level students complete 2-3 cultural electives in addition to their grammar course. A student’s language level is determined by a placement exam administered by the Universidad de Salamanca.

ADDITIONAL CREDIT OPTIONS

Students can earn additional credits if they choose to combine two or more terms, or if they add an intensive month of language, conversation and cultural studies (consisting of 80 contact hours) at the beginning or end of their program.

ACADEMIC YEAR OPTIONS

OPTION 1 Most academic year students ultimately choose to complete the fall quarter of the Spanish Language and Culture Program and the spring semester the International Studies Program. Students who choose this option will have a different program end-date than the winter/spring Spanish Language an Culture Program students.

OPTION 2 Academic year students may choose to pursue two consecutive quarters of the Spanish Language and Culture Program.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students will receive a transcript from the Universidad de Salamanca upon completion of their program.
