Study Abroad in Spain this Summer

The Camino de Santiago: A Trekking Adventure through Spain’s Culture and History is a study abroad course that welcomes students of all academic backgrounds to explore the many wonders of Spain — its languages, peoples, customs, landscapes, history, architecture, and food. The centerpiece of this program is a 160-mile walk along the Camino de Santiago (The Way of Saint James), a 9th-century pilgrimage route, where students will traverse the lush, forested landscapes of Galicia en route to the city of Santiago de Compostela. Students will encounter Spain’s fascinating culture and history first-hand, as they visit ancient ruins, medieval villages, and soaring cathedrals.  Students will also visit important historical sites in the cities of Astorga and Madrid, as well as spend a day on the ruggedly beautiful coast of Galicia, once considered to be the “end of the world.” Daily individual and group assignments will invite students to critically reflect on their many encounters with Spain’s culture and history.
