Qualified juniors are encouraged to spend a semester or a year in a Spanish-speaking country either with Wellesley's consortium program in Córdoba, Spain, and in partnership with Middlebury in Santiago, Chile, or another approved program. To be eligible for study in Córdoba for one or two semesters in Wellesley's Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba (PRESHCO), or in Santiago with the Middlebury in Chile Program a student should ordinarily be enrolled in SPAN 241 or a higher-level language or literature course the previous semester.
In providing students with a complete education in Spanish language and culture, the Spanish Department recognizes the value of studying abroad. Many different wintersession, semester, and full year programs are offered throughout the Spanish-speaking world. Please select the program in which you are interested.
