The following list of recommended programs is for orientation purposes only. It includes programs that offer courses for which Spanish credit may be granted. Students who study abroad (or at one of the listed programs in the US) during the summer may receive up to one credit for their work. 

Please keep in mind that only in exceptional circumstances will Spanish majors and minors be allowed to fulfill the semester-long off-campus study requirement with a summer program. Another important factor students should be aware of when considering summer off-campus study or Spanish language options is that summer programs are not covered by Swarthmore College financial aid, and thus students are responsible for the full cost of such programs. Students should consider applying for a fellowship from the Summer Research and Opportunities program

Students interested in summer off-campus study programs or in summer Spanish language programs should consult with a Spanish faculty member about their options.
