Help Spanish Majors Travel Abroad

Support Spanish majors with a special educational opportunity for international travel, cultural experiences, and real-life application of their studies.

Guanajuato, one of the paramount cities culturally and historically of Mexico, named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, has a world renowned theater, the University of Guanajuato, the Don Quixote museum (Museo Iconografico del Quijote), and the museum home of artist Diego Rivera, the esteemed muralist. 

This culturally significant Mexican city will be the site of a trip during spring break, where students will experience everything that they have studied in language, culture, and literature.  For students, such a trip is a lifetime experience that will open doors they never knew were there. 

This trip will involve ten to twelve students (must be enrolled in SPAN 489) and one faculty member.

$1,500 will fund one student’s travel, lodging, and activity expenses

Students will enjoy a variety of culturally-enriching excursions, which in years past have included trips to Guanajuato’s world-renowned theater, the University of Guanajuato, the Don Quixote Museum (Museo Iconografico del Quijote), and the museum home of artist Diego Rivera, the esteemed muralist. 

Travel to this culturally significant Mexican city will take place during spring break. For students, such a trip is a lifetime experience that will open doors they never knew were there. 

Travel abroad has been shown to help students choose a career field, increase their likelihood of being accepted to a graduate school of their choice, and lower chances of unemployment. Time abroad also facilitates a greater tolerance for ambiguity, and increases students’ self-confidence.
