Why Study in Spain?
There was a time when Spain held the most powerful empire in the world, and in many ways, it is still the crossroads of Europe and Africa. Because of this studying abroad in Spain offers students an opportunity to learn about many cultures while living in one small country. The fierce sport of bullfighting can be found there, and the passionate music and dance of the flamenco. But there is also rich cultural diversity, from the Celtic musical traditions in the north to the Moorish architecture in the south. World Endeavors students in Spain immerse themselves in Spanish language and culture and learn to live on a different rhythm.
The Value of Studying Abroad
Studying abroad is one of the best choices students can make to deepen their studies and expand their worldview. It’s a chance to learn new ways to think, to meet new friends from around the world, and to be immersed in a new culture or in some cases even a new language. Students who go abroad have access to art, scenery, historical sites, and cultural events that can’t be found at home. No matter what they study, students will find going abroad to be an education in thinking across cultures and adapting to new experiences. And for many, studying abroad is the spark that ignites a lifelong passion for international travel and cultural exploration.

Honestly, it was the best semester I’ve ever had. I met so many people and learned so many things. I created a new interest in this culture that I knew nothing about. I found a new love for a different country.
