Program Description:
Guadalajara, capital of the state of Jalisco, is Mexico's second-largest city. Founded in 1542 by Spanish conquistadors, it maintains ties to its rich cultural past, priding itself on being Mexico's most traditional large city. Sombreros, mariachis, and tequila all have their origins here. At the same time, Guadalajara is a modern city and home to Mexico's high-tech sector. This blend of traditional and modern makes Guadalajara a perfect place to study Spanish language while gaining an appreciation of the complexities of today's Mexico.

Students participating in the CCIS Guadalajara Program will study at Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (UAG), one of Mexico's top five institutions for higher education. Semester and quarter long program options are available for beginning to advanced Spanish speakers.
