The city of Queretaro, situated in the State of Queretaro, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With its colonial aqueduct as a major landmark and a wonderfully preserved city center, Queretaro embodies the beauty of colonial Mexico. Many international companies have located in and around Queretaro giving it an excellent reputation as a center for business and commerce. With a population of nearly 600,000 inhabitants, Queretaro is large enough to be interesting, and small enough to be very livable.
The overall goal of this program is cultural and linguistic immersion. Classes are small and taught in Spanish by experienced Mexican professors. The curriculum for all classes integrates cultural and historical content and teachers often take students off campus to visit historically or architecturally significant sites. Qualified faculty from an OUS institution often serve as the program Resident Director. This program is offered in 5, 6, and 12-week sessions, with language instruction at the second, third and fourth year levels as well as upper-division courses in Mexican civilization and Spanish American literature (literature courses are only available in the six week sessions).
