Exchange Program Offers Study Abroad in Spain

Truman in partnership with Universidad de Burgos, offers a unique student exchange program for study in Spain. Surrounded by the gorgeous and historic city of Burgos, students are always in close proximity to cultural events. Students are offered Intensive Spanish language training as well as other courses in a variety of disciplines including economics, art history, biology, sociology, nursing, law, finance and accounting, political science, occupational therapy and engineering. Courses are taught in English and Spanish.

Students also have the option of getting credits by registering in the practicum course. The internship involves assisting teachers and preparing activities to help students develop their speaking and listening skills. Along with this practicum comes the possibility of a small stipend.

Because this is an exchange program, students who plan on participating will pay Truman tuition directly to Truman. This makes payments easy and affordable.

Students have three options for housing: they can stay in furnished University dorms located on the San Amaro campus, be in a home-stay with private room and laundry or share a flat with Spanish students. Students are responsible for arranging and paying the University of Burgos or their landlord directly for all housing costs.

To apply, fill out a Truman application and send a statement of purpose, official transcripts, a copy of passport and two letters of recommendation to the Study Abroad Office in Baldwin Hall 106.

Application deadline for spring (February to mid-July) is Nov. 15. Application deadline for fall (September through December) is June 15.
