Our college credit summer programs are designed for advanced Spanish speakers ages 16-18 who want to be challenged in their language study. Sessions take place at the Villages in the context of the Villages, not at Concordia College.

Villagers engage in intensive, innovative language instruction in small classes and upon successful completion, receive one college credit (four semester hours) and an official transcript from Concordia College, Moorhead, Minn.

Students must be in grades 11-12 (entering high school junior or senior year, but not yet a fully enrolled college student) with three previous years of language study.

Our college credit summer programs are intensive courses about the civilization and culture of Latin America. Through the use of the Spanish language, students learn different historical perspectives of countries included in Latin America from pre-Columbian times to the present. Students do presentations, write compositions, view cultural videos, do interviews, read authentic literature and listen to cultural presentations given by staff from Latin America. The course is taught entirely in Spanish. Students improve their language skills through the context of learning about many other civilizations and cultures. 

How to Apply

Unlike our high school credit or language immersion sessions, participants who would like to enroll in the college credit session must apply and be accepted. Learn more about the application requirements for our college credit programs.
