Students enroll directly at the Universidad de la Rioja in several disciplines alongside their Spanish students, with particular focus on Spanish philology, literature, history, and natural sciences. The university campus is located within the city and Middlebury students usually walk or take a short bus ride to their clases. UR's 7,500 students have access to computer rooms in each building and sports facilities. WiFi is available throughout the campus.
Participants in the C.V. Starr-Middlebury Schools Abroad don’t just study a language—they live it. Many of our students major in disciplines other than foreign languages, yet all bring a level of proficiency that supports their commitment to language and cultural immersion. They sign and honor the Middlebury Language Pledge because they want the greatest possible challenge in a study abroad program and an authentic experience in every respect; academic, social, and even professional. Participants take courses in most subjects with host country students, intern or engage in volunteer work, and live with a host family. Indeed, at every juncture of their time abroad, students have the chance to "live the language" and immerse themselves in the host culture.
- Setting Description:
- Logroño is a vibrant city of 150,000 located in the wine-making region of La Rioja, in the north-central part of Spain. The Castillian language has its roots in the nearby monasteries of San Millán de la Cogolla. The "Camino de Santiago," a religious pilgrimage route, also runs through this province. Students enrolled at the Universidad de la Rioja, Middlebury's host institution, immerse themselves in Spanish language, regional culture and cuisine. Logroño offers a lively population and relaxed pace of life in a location with very few English-speakers.
