Program Overview

Program Description:
Georgia State offers many summer and maymester programs led and taught by Georgia State professors.

Students participate in lectures, site visits, excursions, and tours as part of the program. These programs usually last between two and six weeks. Students find these programs a great way to really get to know their professors and other GSU students while earning GSU credits and grades. Students do not have to study on a program related to their major, but they certainly can. Financial aid and scholarships are available.

Many of the countries in the EU are being rocked by social and economic change. Countries within the Eurozone are facing dwindling economic resources and must make difficult decisions regarding the structure of the social safety nets. The system of government provided services, long the envy of many in the developed world is undergoing significant change. It is critical to understand how these and other social issues impact the educational system of countries undergoing this social evolution. Obviously a major component of the social system in Spain is its educational system. How a country educates its children will determine its financial successes. Like many other countries, Spain has had to deal with an increasing immigrant population in its schools. This increase in the number of non-native Spainards in classrooms presents unique challenges to the educational system. Specifically, issues related to language, the difference in educational level between immigrant children and their same age Spainard peers, the financial pressures put on the parents of these immigrant children. Students will have an opportunity to experience a culture different from their own while seeing how Spain deals with issues in their effort to modernize the way they educate their children while maintaining their rich cultural traditions.

Setting Description:
Students will stay in hotels, hostels and/or the University of Alcala dorms.
