In summer 2022, Dr. José-Luis Gastañaga ([email protected]) traveled with UTC students to Alcalá de Henares, Spain. Students chose to take up to 9 credit hours in June or up to 15 credit hours if stayed for two months (June & July). When not in class students took advantage of their long weekends to explore the area and travel. Alcalá’s strategic location in the middle of the Peninsula and so close to Madrid made it an ideal departure point to travel to throughout Spain.
Opportunities for language and cultural immersion were many. Notable among them was the homestay system that allowed students to stay with local families and share meals and other experiences with them.
UTC will be returning to Spain in the summer of 2024. Contact Dr. Lynn Purkey ([email protected]), for more information.
