Improve your Spanish while gaining insight into the realities of life in the developing world of the Dominican Republic. In Santiago, you’ll immerse yourself in local culture, both on and off campus, through a combination of intensive coursework, homestays, volunteer opportunities, and a variety of cultural activities and excursions. In class you’ll study the language, politics, regional literature, and art. During rural work retreats, you’ll become part of life in the Dominican Republic – and the Dominican Republic will become part of you. Study abroad in Santiago and you'll: - Interact with Dominican society through homestays, university courses, rural and urban volunteering activities, language partners, and activities with Dominican and Haitian students - Consider an optional community service or Teaching English as a Second Language course (earn a TESL certificate), both of which include a hands-on practicum - Contrast the daily realities of the Dominicans and Haitians who share the campus and city - Learn outside the classroom on class trips including visits to free trade zones, sites of ecological and historical-cultural importance, and a weekend excursions to the Samaná Peninsula and mountains of Constanza
