Who is eligible to apply for the program?
Undergraduate students, with advanced Spanish language proficiency, juniors or seniors, matriculated in Villanova University, and with a grade point average of at least 3.0
Can I intern more than once?
A student might accumulate a total of (15) academic credits on their transcript, making it possible over a four semester period and a summer to have more than one internship experience. It is recommended, however, not to repeat the same internship. The Spanish Internship will count (3 credits) towards the Spanish Major and/or Minor. Repeats will count only as electives.
How do I earn academic credit for my field of work?
You will be granted three credits in Spanish upon satisfactory completion of the program requirements. These credits are course equivalent and can be part of the courses toward your minor or major in Spanish. The course will appear on your transcript. You need not make up additional courses to graduate. Internships are graded S/U
What are the benefits of this program?
