This Program gives students the opportunity to expand their horizon and perspectives with an international experience. Students are immersed into the culture, language and life of Spanish people from the Iberian Peninsula. Participants have the opportunity to gain fluency and confidence in communicating with locals as they travel throughout Spain.
Students develop an awareness of the diversity at different levels of European cultures and an appreciation for the complexities of human intercultural relations. While at their destination, students take SFC courses taught by SFC faculty. Faculty-Led Study Abroad in Segovia, Spain, is offered during the Spring semester as well as the Summer 1 session. While earning credits toward a major, minor, or college requirement, this life changing experience is a cultural adventure of a life-time.
Students have the opportunity to travel across Europe!

"To say I feel blessed to have stayed in Segovia is an understatement. It is not only about going to a new place, but the people you meet and the memories you make. Segovia and all of Spain we experienced gave me stories to tell for a life time and new friends to talk about it forever."

“The opportunity to meet and learn from engaging, world-class instructors, get to know local students, and tour local historical, financial, and industrial centers provides great perspective and accelerates every student’s goals of becoming a more informed global citizen. The study trip is also a lot of fun. I am grateful to Professor Mattos and SFC for expanding my world view.”
