- Program Description:
CEHS Summer programs offer each and every program participant a complete, rewarding and unforgettable study abroad experience at a very affordable price. CEHS summer sessions 1, 2 and 3 are 4 weeks in length (28 days), and offer classes in language, literature, history and art. Students with lower levels of language proficiency may take a lower-level Spanish language class, and combine it with an English language Civilization and Culture or Photography class. Students may earn 3 credits (one class) or 6 credits (2 classes).
Summer 1 is an extraordinary value, as all academic classes, three meals per day, homestays (one student per wonderful family), exciting program travel package, local visits in Segovia, optional hike, and several additional items are all included in the advertised program price. There are no hidden costs in this hard-to-beat price. Summers 2 and 3, also programs of great value, make travel optional, affording students the possibility of independent travel on weekends (with one 3-4 day weekend). CEHS, if there is sufficient interest among group members, will help organize group travel.
All CEHS classes are offered for-credit, and follow a U.S. curriculum and grading system.
CEHS programs are complete, and of the highest quality. Please visit the Centro de Estudios Hispánicos de Segovia website to learn more about the specific elements that comprise our programs.
- Setting Description:
- Segovia, UNESCO designated World Heritage of Humanity city, is a beautiful, ancient city in the heart of Spain, and thanks to its rich history, breathtaking architecture, and undeniable charm, it is an ideal location for study abroad. As you roam the streets of Segovia, you move through Spanish history: the visible remnants of the past and Spain's diversity abound--the Roman Aqueduct, the fairy-tale like 12th-century Castle (El Alcázar), Spain's last Gothic Cathedral which presides over the Main Square, Mudéjar art (Islamic artistic influence under Christian rule), the Medieval Jewish Quarter, and much more. But Segovia, a city of 53,000, also has a lively cultural calendar, active nightlife, cinema, museums, shops, restaurants, and tranquil green areas...
- Pre-departure and On-site services included, such as orientation, advising, airport reception and return (when arriving within predetermined timeframe), resident directors, housing (host family), 3 meals per day, tuition, supplemental medical/travel insurance, excursions (Summer 1), social and cultural activities and more!
