Program Overview

Program Description:
The AIP Language Institute in Valencia was founded by the Advisers for International Programs in Spain (AIP) in an effort to combine academic instruction with cultural activities that truly enhance the study abroad experience of our students. Located in the heart of Valencia, the Institute boasts a modern building, computer services for students, and a variety of student services. Although AIP is not a Spanish university, courses are taught by Spanish professors. In addition, AIP's Language Partners Program allows Spaniards and Americans to get together to practice their language skills. The University at Albany's semester-length study abroad option at the AIP Language Institute is designed for students with beginning and intermediate Spanish proficiency who want to learn about various aspects of Spanish culture while developing their language skills. The classes, cultural excursions and field trips with the group, and your interaction with Spaniards outside the classroom combine for an invaluable experience.

The University at Albany's study abroad option at the AIP Language Institute is intended for students with lower-level Spanish language skills. UAlbany will award the same number of credits and the same grades as the AIP Language Institute. An intensive six-credit Spanish language course at the beginning, intermediate, or more advanced level is required of all students. Additional three-credit courses, taught in English, are offered in a variety of subjects, including culture, literature, art, history, and business. The Spanish literature course is taught in both English and Spanish (separate classes). In order to take the literature course in Spanish, it is recommended that students have at least intermediate level Spanish skills. Please see our website for more information.
