Program Overview

Program Description:

Students who choose to study abroad in Cádiz can enjoy the feel of a modern campus, which still retains the old world charm of the fascinating city of Cádiz. Cádiz is known for its charm, great seafood, relaxed atmosphere, clean air and warm southern Spanish hospitality. API students can see why people settled here centuries ago, and why they come today to “step back in time” to experience a true southern Spanish lifestyle. Each student’s Spanish language proficiency will improve as they settle into the welcoming and open atmosphere of the city of Cádiz. By living with a family and experiencing life in Cádiz, API students have abundant opportunities to use and improve their language skills while learning about life in this historic European city.

Students in this semester (fall or spring) program have the opportunity to take courses from the Integrated Studies Program (which allows the motivated, advanced Spanish speaker who wants to complete their courses in Spanish with local students), and to also take some of their courses from the Hispanic Studies Program, (which allows students to complete their courses in Spanish with other American students). Courses conducted in English are also available in certain areas of study.

Setting Description:
Each student’s Spanish language proficiency will improve as they settle into the welcoming and open atmosphere of the city of Cádiz. By living with a family and experiencing life in Cádiz, API students have abundant opportunities to use and improve their language skills while learning about life in this historic European city. Cádiz, founded in approximately 1,100 B.C., is the oldest city in Europe. Surrounded by the sea on three sides, Cádiz is only accessible by the “Puerta de Tierra,” a strip of land that once served as protection from invasion, and now serves as the only entrance into the city. Though many ancient ruins are now covered by the ocean or modern construction, the rich history of Cádiz is evident everywhere! API students can see why people settled here centuries ago, and why they come today to “step back in time” to experience a true southern Spanish lifestyle.
