Six Weeks-Twelve Credit Intensive Spanish Summer Program

The University of Scranton will sponsor a faculty led study abroad trip to Cochabamba, Bolivia at the Centro Misionero Maryknoll en America Latina. The travel course will be 6 weeks in duration and involve the study of Spanish language for 4 hours a day for 5 days a week transferring as 9 credits to the University of Scranton. The courses will be individually geared to any level of Spanish proficiency from those who have never studied Spanish to those with an advanced knowledge.  Three afternoons a week for 2.5 hours for six weeks the students will study a University of Scranton course equivalent to T/RS 219 Religions of the World adjusted to include the indigenous religions of Bolivia. This will count as a 3 credit (P) University of Scranton course. Total credits for the six week period will be 12. The students will live in homestays with Bolivian families all of whom have been vetted and are very experienced with providing this service. There will be a supervised service component available for those students who wish to participate. There will be a weekend excursion to the functioning Jesuit missions in the east of Bolivia near Paraguay and an optional trip to La Paz and Lake Titicaca in the Altiplano region bordering Peru.

This travel course is scheduled for the summer 2018 semester from May 20rd to June 29th. Permission of either Prof. Linda Ledford-Miller or Fr. John Sivalon is required for participation.
