SP288: Study Abroad

SP288: Study Abroad is a 1.0-credit Spanish language and cultural immersion experience. The program is offered in Spain each Spring term under the supervision of an accompanying WLU professor. In 2017, SP288 celebrates its 10th Anniversary and milestone of taking its 160th student abroad!

The SP288 host institution is El Colegio de Espaņa in Salamanca, Spain where students are placed in their appropriate level of Spanish and receive intensive instruction emphasizing key areas of Spanish language learning such as speaking, listening, and grammar.


Students also have the opportunity to develop Spanish language skills through constant interaction with Spanish-speaking teachers, host families, community members, and other international students.

On the weekends, the group travels to over a dozen UNESCO World Heritage Sites across Spain on guided tours in Spanish which offer an understanding of various cultures and contextualize language, art, and history.
