Students will select two courses for a total of six credits, choosing between topics such as Biological Psychology or Psychology in the Workplace. Alternatively, students may replace one of these courses with a research internship in a clinic or university that will examine pertinent health issues in psychology or neuroscience. Research placements integrate students with their Spanish labmates and allow for both training in research methodology and consistent intercultural immersion.

Participants have the option to live with homestay families or live in Spanish dormitories with local students, both options allowing for full immersion in Spanish culture. There will be an excursion to Toledo as well as a number of visits to companies working in neuroscience. Preference is given to students with two semesters of college-level Spanish or more.
