Spanish Language & Internship Program
Spring Quarter 2011, UW students will travel to León, Spain for a unique advanced language studies and internship experience at the new UW Léon Center. Students will spend ten weeks in León studying Spanish 302 & 303 while also completing a part-time internship. Internships will be available in several areas of study and across many industries. These internships will be able to accommodate a wide range of interests on the part of the student. Industries include, but are not limited to, banking, aeronautics, IT, and forestry. Your opportunities to use your Spanish will extend after work into your homestays. Staying with Spanish families, you will receive three meals a day, laundry service, and a private room.
Students in the program will maintain their UW residency and most financial aid eligibility already established. Credits earned will be recorded on students’ UW transcripts and may apply directly to UW graduation requirements.
Students will receive 10 credits of SPAN 302 & 303, and 2 credits of IBUS 495.
