Experience Spain

Santiago de Compostela, Spain

The Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela is the legendary burial place of St. James the Apostle. A thousand years ago Santiago was considered an outpost of Catholicism; since then “el Camino de Santiago” has been one of the most important pilgrimages in Europe. The Day of the Apostle, celebrated every July, is an international Catholic festival. Surrounded by farmland, Santiago blends rural tranquility with the intellectual and cultural excitement of an urban area. Formerly declared a European Cultural Capital, the city is the seat of government for the autonomous region of Galicia and boasts Universidade de Santiago de Compostela, one of the finest universities in Spain.


Students will enroll in courses through Cursos Internacionales at Universidade de Santiago de Compostela with other American and international students. Additionally, students will participate in a 1-credit internship and a 1-credit service experience in the local community.
