Academics at SYA Spain
SYA Spain is committed to ensuring that students develop the knowledge and intercultural skills needed to fully grasp their experience — from mastering the language, to communicating in Spanish with a pen pal in another region, to hiking or kayaking in the Aragonese countryside or heading out of town with the host family for an extended weekend.
All students are required to take six courses, including Spanish language, English, math and Experiential Spanish. Students participating in the semester program will receive .5 credits per course while yearlong students will receive 1 credit per course.
Sample courses can be viewed below. The course catalog for the 2021-2022 academic year is not yet available. Click here to view last year's course catalog. You will also note that many of our courses are denoted as "FW" which means that the course involves a fieldwork element designed to challenge students in the broader community.
