Study abroad requirement:
  Our program in Spain is located in the university city of Valladolid. Students take courses in Spanish language, history, civilization, economics, and art at the Universitas Castellae. In Argentina, our program is offered in cooperation with the Fundación José Ortega y Gasset in Buenos Aires, which provides Spanish language courses at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Students may also enroll in courses taught in English. LVC has three program tracks in the Dominican Republic. In Santo Domingo students are offered coursework in language, politics, regional literature, and art, as well as rural work retreats. In Santiago, students can choose between a coursework-only track with studies of the language, politics, literature and art or the competitive service learning track, which challenges students to a uniquely immersive and rewarding intercultural experience. All three tracks offer field work and a variety of cultural activities and excursions.
