On this exciting program in Alicante, students will have an opportunity to complete their final semester of Spanish on this 5-week, 6-credit intensive program. Students receive 4 credits of Spanish 232, and 2 credits in an intercultural development course taught by a local University of Alicante instructor. Through their local course, students will navigate conversations about local and global current events through a Spanish cultural lens. Students will also embark on a day trip to Valencia, home to the City of Arts and Sciences, a cultural and architectural complex. The program is taught and led by U-M Professor Maria Dorantes.
