LASP now allows students from a variety of academic backgrounds to customize their study abroad experience through a partnership with Veritas University. This unique program model combines in-depth cultural immersion and Spanish language coursework with the opportunity to self-select from a catalog of courses and internship opportunities that match your chosen field of study. In addition to the required core coursework, students select from the Interdisciplinary Track (elective courses and community immersion) or Practicum Track (optional elective course and internship). Below is an outline of the required courses and tracks. All students are required to take a minimum of 13 and up to a maximum of 18 credits per semester.
