This unique, spring semester-long program is designed to guarantee an amazing experience. You will enjoy the benefits of long-term immersion in Spanish culture and language at your own pace.

You will be living in Valencia, Spain, one of the world’s preferred destinations to study abroad due to its unique mixture of traditional Mediterranean and urban culture. Prepare to soak up the city’s cultural richness, history and society as you wander its mile-long beaches, join the lively nightlife, or relax with a tapas in one of its numerous gardens.

In Spain, you will:

  • Take 6 UNM credits of face-to-face Communication and Culture courses with Dr. Susana Martínez Guillem and your fellow UNM students.
  • You will also take 3 credits of Spanish language and culture with local instructors and other students from all over the world. These Spanish credits will be officially recognized by UNM's Department of Spanish and Portuguese. Our local school staff will adjust to your level, so there is no previous language requirement.
  • Combine these credits with any online UNM courses to meet your academic and scholarship requirements.
