So that students may discover another culture, the department offers intensive immersion programs in Spain. Students may earn up to 4 hours of USC Aiken credit, which can be applied towards the language requirement. The course, which is normally scheduled during Maymester, involves one or more pre-departure meetings and two weeks of intensive language instruction . The student will be hosted by and live and share most meals with a Spanish family. A limited amount of scholarship aid is available for participants. For more information about this study abroad program, please contact Dr. Timothy Ashton.
