The Spanish faculty offers two options for a semester-long study abroad in Spanish. Each allows Hanover students to spend an academic semester off-campus taking courses which can be counted toward a Hanover College degree. Students who participate in either of these programs will be taking regular university courses with Spanish or Mexican students. Both of these programs are true exchanges, making them very affordable and offering students the chance to interact with Spanish and Mexican students at Hanover too.
The Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), Ciudad Real, Spain. Located is a small city approximately 125 miles south of Madrid, UCLM is part of a multi-campus system established in 1985. Ciudad Real itself is a city relatively untouched by American influence and offers a unique environment that will allow Hanover students to experience life in a typically Spanish community. Hanover students take classes taught in Spanish with Spanish peers and live in a dorm with Spanish roommates.
