Offered through CIEE the Liberal Arts (LA) and Summer Language and Culture (L&C) in Alcala programs are approved UW affiliate programs. On the LA program you will take a combination of one CIEE Study Center language course and three or four courses offered through the Institute. Courses range in subject from globalization and business, to literature, history, the arts, and communications. If you have advanced Spanish language skills, you can opt to directly enroll in one or two courses with Spanish students at the Universidad de Alcala. On the summer L&C program, you will take courses at the Institute ranging in subjects such as business and history, to linguistics, literature, political science, and art history. You are required to take two courses per summer session.

You will be working closely with both IAP and CIEE on this program. You can access the program LA and L&C pages through the CIEE website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
