Living with a host family and studying along side 80,000 Spanish students allows Messiah students to become immersed in the language and culture of Spain. Students are introduced to Spanish culture through an initial orientation that includes intensive language instruction and travel to cities throughout the country such as Avila, Cordoba, Cuenca, Granada, Madrid, Segovia, Sevilla, and Toledo.

“Spain allowed me, as a Spanish major, the opportunity for Spanish language growth that would not have been possible if I had stayed at Messiah.  I was able to enroll in Spanish linguistic classes for native speakers and took a class course load that was entirely in Spanish.”
