This course is taught by a Spanish professor whose specialty is Spanish Language Acquisition and who is accustomed to working with American students. The professor works closely and individually to help students, to improve their Spanish through conversation, compositions, readings, etc.
The Sewanee Semester in Spain program focuses on contemporary Spain and its relationship to and membership in the European Union. The program is interdisciplinary in nature, with each course looking at a variety of issues from multiple perspectives. The program has been carefully conceived and designed for all Sewanee students, no matter their major, who are interested in Spanish culture, life and language. And it is ideal for Spanish majors and minors and for IGS majors/minors with a geographical concentration in Europe and Spanish Language. At the end of the program students will have completed a full Sewanee Semester (16 hours).
Dates: January 11 - April 30, 2020 (Traveling days included)
Why go in the spring versus the fall? When thinking about the perfect time to organize a semester-long program in Spain, the department carefully studied all the educational, cultural and travel possibilities, and spring, by those criteria, is the clear winner. Time has proved us right; since we started the focus on Spain in the European Union, Sewanee students were in Brussels when Great Britain presented the Brexit letter to the European Union. Sewanee Students were in Spain when Cataluña decided to become independent, and started a long process that it is still unfolding, and current students will be present for the national elections for the presidency of Spain.
