API students in Salamanca will study at the University of Salamanca. Founded in 1218, it is the oldest university in Spain. Acknowledged by Pope Alexander IV to be one of the four great universities in the world, it stands in the company of the universities of Bolgna, Oxford, and Paris. King Ferdinand consulted with leaders of the university for advice on supporting the exploration venture of Christopher Columbus. Students can choose from undergraduate programs in Spanish language and culture, Hispanic studies, or a Special Integrated Program that allows advanced level students to enroll directly in regular university classes with native Spanish students. Students can also pursue graduate programs in Spanish teaching. Semester, summer, year, and intensive two-week, three-week, and month-long terms are available for most programs.
