Study Abroad

Undergraduate Study Abroad Programs

Nowadays, when you decide to study abroad, you have many options. Why should you choose one of our programs?

  • The Salamanca Summer Program, the Granada Fall and Spring Semester Program and the Oviedo Spring Semester Program are supervised by UMass Amherst faculty/staff.
  • If you choose one of these programs, you know how the courses you take abroad are going to transfer before you leave: so there are no unpleasant surprises when you return.
  • While there are limits to the number of credits that you can transfer towards your minor and major in Spanish at UMass Amherst (in regards to courses you take through other study abroad programs), there is no such a limit for transferring courses you take abroad through these programs.
  • Your financial aid is available to study abroad.

Integrative Experience
Our Integrative Experience contemplates either study abroad or service learning for all our majors. In addition, students have to take two classes: one before and one after their study abroad or service learning experience.
