Spanish Studies Abroad offers Hollins students the opportunity to study in Córdoba, Argentina. Córdoba is Argentina's colonial capital, a picturesque city of one million inhabitants on the edge of the Sierra Chica mountains. A center of arts and learning, Córdoba is home to several universities, including the Universidad Blas Pascal, which serves as host to this program.
Courses offered by Spanish Studies Abroad include Spanish language and Argentine history and culture. Qualified students may also take courses in a wide variety of subjects with Argentine students at the university. Cultural excursions to museums and historical sites in Córdoba and guided trips to Buenos Aires and neighboring provinces provide opportunities to experience some of the highlights of the world's eighth largest country.
Students live with the families of local students for the first four weeks of the program and can choose to live with host families or in the university's residence halls for the remainder of the program.
This program is offered both fall and spring to qualified juniors who have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 and who have completed the intermediate level of college Spanish.
