The University of Valladolid, whose history can be traced back to the 13th century, has been the inspirational foundation for numerous other prestigious universities in Spain. It has at all times upheld its firm commitment to teaching and research and, while forging links with Europe and the Americas, has remained deeply committed to its home region of Castilla y Leon. Four campuses, Valladolid, Palencia, Segovia, and Soria, offer over 100 degree options, including numerous postgraduate and Ph.D. programs, distinguished research centers, a wide range of cultural and sports activities, and a rich architectural and archival heritage. For more information about Universidad de Valladolid.

The faculty for the CSUSB Spain Summer Program is Dr. Arturo Fernández Gibert, Professor of Spanish. He will have the pleasure of accompanying CSUSB students in what was once the court and capital of the Spanish Empire, now a modern and captivating European city.

Mediterranean Studies Academy Student Travelogues about Spain 2017

Eva Lopez -Granada, Spain 2017

"The study abroad program to Granada 2017 meant more to me than just a trip to another country. My daughter, Annelise, a non CSUSB student, was able to accompany me as a gift for her recent graduation from UCR as well as a birthday present which she celebrated while on this trip. She was my faithful companion throughout this trip."

Kimberly Cardenas-Granada, Spain 2017

"I am absolutely thankful for the opportunity to travel abroad for the first time with the help of the Presidential Award. Embarking on this two week study abroad throughout southern Spain was truly unforgettable in every way and more. I couldn’t be happier with my decision since this was an opportunity to explore my Spanish heritage."

Jenny Espinoza- Spain 2017

"Before traveling to Spain, the only place I had visited out of the country was Mexico. As a third year student, I really wanted to explore all the options I had, while attending CSUSB. I found out that there was a Mediterranean course that would be offered in the summer and was immediately interested to sign up, especially once I found out that Dr. Jerez- Gomez would be teaching the course."

Valeria Zaragoza- Granada, Spain 2017

'Incredible is an understatement when describing my experience in Granada, Spain. Never did I imagine that I would fall so quickly and deeply in love with this two-week journey. Not only did this trip rekindle my interest in the beauty of literature while taking Humanities 340 with Professor Jerez-Gomez in Spain, it was rewarding to travel with a group of strangers that turned into friends (since I have only traveled with family or by myself).'
