The Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba (PRESHCO) was established by U.S. faculty with several objectives: to encourage the intellectual and personal growth that comes from immersion in another culture, to offer an opportunity to enhance acquisition of the Spanish language, and to foster knowledge and appreciation of Spanish culture through studies in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts. Academic life at PRESHCO is centered around courses specially conceived for American college students and taught by regular faculty of the University of Córdoba. Students with sufficient language skills may enroll in regular university classes, some with special tutorials designed for U.S. students. Students are housed in student residences, families, or apartments. Meals are included. PRESHCO offers several excursions each semester to destinations which may include Barcelona, Segovia, Toledo, Granada and Seville. Day trips are periodically arranged to various points of cultural interest in the Córdoba region, such as a visit to a Montilla winery or an olive oil press in Baena.
