PRESHCO(Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba)

Smith College participates in a study abroad consortium together with Oberlin College and Wellesley College.

PRESHCO, the Programa de Estudios Hispánicos en Córdoba, has been sending students from the consortium to Spain since 1981. The program is designed to encourage personal and intellectual growth, to improve the student's command of the Spanish language, and to foster knowledge and appreciation of the Spanish culture.

Students live with carefully chosen families. They attend classes at the University of Córdoba's Facultad de filosofía y letras, housed in an eighteenth-century palace of Córdoba's old quarter. All classes are taught in Spanish by professors from the University of Córdoba and other educational institutions located in the area. Students must take at least one class at the UCO.

PRESHCO is administered in Córdoba by a Resident Director, an Administrative Assistant, and a Faculty Coordinator. The Resident Director for the 2013-2015 years is Christine Shelton, a Smith Professor of Exercise and Sport Studies. Overall administration of the program is carried out by two Executive Directors and an Executive Committee composed of faculty representatives from the member institutions. The student's personal and educational needs are carefully attended to by the program's faculty and administration. The combination of academic excellence, foreign living, and individual attention creates the opportunity for a personal and educational experience that will be of life-long benefit.

If you have any questions, please contact either
Martha Ackelsberg, Nancy Sternbach or Patricia González. The application deadline to study abroad in Spring 2015 is OCTOBER 15, 2014, or the 2015 - 2016 Academic Year, is FEBRUARY 15, 2015.

Visit the Preshco website for the application forms and for more detailed information about the program.
