Study Abroad

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies offers five specially-designed summer study abroad programs.

OJO: We continue to monitor the situation with COVID-19 both at home and abroad. As of now we are tentatively planning to move forward with many of our programs (please see specific program pages for details), but will follow the recommendations of UF, UFIC and the CDC. Our top priority is the safety of our students and our hosts.
