Dateline: September 14, 2018

Athens State University is pleased to announce its 2019 Study Abroad program. Next spring, students will jet off to Salamanca, Spain, a UNESCO World Heritage city that is home to one of Europe’s oldest universities. Led by English professor, Dr. Kevin Dupre, and Psychology professor, Dr. Vanessa Miller, students will have the opportunity to discover and experience the culture of Salamanca while studying their choice of psychology or poetry.

All majors are welcome to participate in the three-week summer program scheduled for May 27 – June 16, 2019. During the trip, students will have the opportunity to visit the Cathedral of Salamanca, Ruta Jacobea, monuments and symbols linked to the Camino de Santiago, and Universidad de Salamanca. Day trips to Segovia & Avila are also planned, including visits to the Alcázar de Segovia and the Ávila walls.

This is the second time Athens State has offered a study abroad program to students. The first occurred in May 2018, where Dr. Dupre and Dr. Miller organized a group of 11 students on a three-week trip to Milan, Italy.
