Students must be at the high-beginning Spanish level or higher to enroll and the project can be completed in either English or Spanish. Students will be assigned a faculty member with whom they will work. Students who choose the 240 hour option will only work on this project while they are abroad and not enroll in additional coursework. Students who choose the 105 hour option may also enroll in additional coursework at the UNINORTE.
