University of León - León, Spain

This program is offered in an ideal setting in the historical city of León, in northern Spain, on the road to Santiago. The city itself has been an important pilgrimage center since the Middle Ages. Besides being of cultural interest, León, is a very Spanish city where tourism has not been commercialized to any great extent. The Modern Languages Department of Molloy College offers three different programs at the University of León: a month-long Spanish language program offered during the summer, or a semester/full academic year abroad. In all of these programs students will take language and culture classes taught in the modern facilities of the University of León by Spanish College professors.
