Included in the program fee, educational excursions offer an exciting way to examine important global issues affecting the local people and environment. Destinations may change and vary by semester. Each semester, students participate in guided weekend excursions to various regions of Spain. Common destinations have included local towns such as Salamanca, Segovia or the “Ruta del Mudéjar.”


The entire city of Valladolid is a classroom and students are encouraged to explore surroundings, which is an ideal way to apply the material learned in class to daily life in the city. There is a wide range of activities to choose from during free time, and taking advantage of these opportunities encourages students to learn more about Hispanic culture and advance more quickly in improving Spanish language skills.
