Offered through CIEE, the Summer Language and Culture in Alcala program is an approved UW affiliate program. On this summer program you will take courses at the Instituto Benjamin Franklin, which offers academic programs in Hispanic Studies for U.S. students, and is where CIEE students take classes 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's Language & Culture page through the CIEE website to learn more about the academics, housing, excursions and activities, and location.
