Fundación José Ortega y Gasset International Program
Fall/Spring Semester Program
Toledo is one of the Spanish cities with the greatest wealth of monuments. Known as the "city of the three cultures", because Christians, Arabs and Jews lived together there for centuries, behind its walls Toledo preserves an artistic and cultural legacy in the form of churches, palaces, fortresses, mosques and synagogues. This great diversity of artistic styles makes the old quarter of the capital of La Mancha a real open-air museum, which has led to it being declared a World Heritage Site.
This study abroad opportunity is offered in cooperation with the Fundación José Ortega y Gasset International Program in Toledo. The curriculum consists of courses in Spanish language and literature, the humanities, and the social sciences, which are all instructed in Spanish. Students are required to enroll in one Spanish language course and may apply for internships in various fields of study. Opportunities to travel with area specialists throughout Spain are also part of this academic and cultural experience. USD students are required to take a minimum of 12 transferable units per semester abroad.
