Salamanca Banner

This multifaceted language program offers graduate and undergraduate students different options, both of which imply a full immersion in Spanish-speaking culture and language. This is a unique academic experience, combining classroom learning together with the guided exploration of other cities and cultural monuments around Spain.  Students not only become more proficient in the language and able to interact with native speakers, but they also experience cultural traditions and monuments from different cultural periods. For those who are at a lower level, we offer up to nine credits. For graduate students, two invited professors from other prestigious American universities (University of Wisconsin at Madison, University of Iowa, UCONN, Harvard, etc.) allow students to take classes with some of the most important Hispanists of the United States through URI. All professors in Program A are native speakers of Spanish, certified by the Instituto Cervantes.

Founded by the Romans, the city of Salamanca offers a resplendent setting for immersion in Spanish life, language and culture. Situated in the northwest region of Spain (about 120 miles from Madrid and near the border of Portugal), Salamanca boasts one of the oldest universities in the world and the oldest in Spain, as well as the country's most magnificent examples of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, century old cathedrals, and monuments.
