French and Spanish summer institutes
(summer MA program in French and Spanish)
Following the immersion principle, every June the French and Spanish Summer Institutes offer two graduate courses over a four-week period divided into two two-week sessions. This program enables graduate students to earn an MA in French or Spanish over four summers of course work supplemented by additional courses taken during the fall or spring term/semester, transfer credits and/or study in France or Spain. All students may combine courses taken during the fall and spring terms/semesters with courses taken during the French or Spanish Summer Institute. Advanced undergraduate students may register for the French or Spanish Summer Institute and receive credits at the 4000 level.
