Program Overview

Spanish LSA+ SantanderThe Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a Spanish LSA+ summer program in Santander (Spain). The program started in 2014 and has been offered every summer since then.  The program is led by a faculty member of the Department.

The LSA+ will be based at the Universidad Internacional "Menéndez Pelayo" (UIMP). It involves two days of extensive, on-site orientation, nine weeks of academic coursework, and a total of six to seven days of cultural excursions as a group.

Santander hosts the oldest and most prestigious International Summer Program in Spain, created in August 1932. The UIMP has two sites: the "Campus de Las Llamas", where classes are taught, and the "Palacio de la Magdalena". The UIMP accommodates a wide range of cultural activities: theater, dance, films, concerts, lectures, meetings with writers, and academic excursions around Cantabria. Our students will be able to attend all events organized by the UIMP.

Santander is located on the Atlantic coast in the region of Cantabria in Northern Spain. It combines its proximity to Bilbao and other historical cities in the regions of Asturias, Basque Country, and Castile, with the flavor and friendliness of a middle-size city (population of about 200,000 people). Its public transportation system is excellent, with easy access to and from university facilities to family housing. The city is pedestrian-friendly with numerous bike paths along the coastline; its renowned beaches, as well as its downtown and cultural offerings are within walking distance from the university.

Financial Information

Tuition and Fees
The fees charged by the College for a Dartmouth-sponsored off-campus term of study include regular tuition charges for a term at Dartmouth, service fees, as well as the specific costs established for each off-campus study locale. In many programs, the room and board costs tend to be higher than for a term in Hanover. You can view a budget sheet for this program by clicking here. The cost of transportation to and from the site is the responsibility of the student.

Financial Aid
In order that all qualified Dartmouth undergraduate students may have the opportunity to take part in off-campus programs, the College endeavors to adjust its normal financial aid awards for students already receiving aid. Tuition and expected family contribution for Dartmouth's off-campus programs are the same as for an on-campus term. Assistance is available to meet extra costs associated with off-campus programs, including airfare. Half of any extra cost is met with additional Dartmouth scholarship; loan assistance is offered for the other half. Loan assistance is also offered to replace the employment that would normally be included in an on-campus term. Although financial aid recipients are given aid to cover all of the required costs of the program, students are responsible for purchasing their own plane ticket and, on some programs, meals. Often this means that part of the expected family contribution is used towards these costs rather than for tuition.
