Summer programs

Kentucky Institute for International Studies (KIIS) Summer programs

Dr. Regina Roebuck is the director of this year’s KIIS Spain I summer program, which takes place in Segovia, a charming provincial capital in the foothills of the Guadarrama mountains, only 60 miles to the north of Madrid. Segovia's convenient location makes it ideal for excursions.  Short trips to Madrid and the surrounding areas will provide students with dramatically different experiences of Spain. Students stay with host families.  Up to 6 credits. 

Directed by Dr. Melissa Stewart of WKU, this program also takes place in Segovia, and includes excursions to nearby Toledo and other sites.   Courses range from the 300-400 level.  Students stay with host families.  Up to 6 credits.  

This program takes place in Mexico City, where students visit the t the pyramids at Teotihuacán, the Basilica of Guadalupe, the National Palace (to see the murals of Diego Rivera), the Templo Mayor, the National Cathedral, and the Palacio de Bellas Artes, and then in Morelia, a beautiful colonial city virtually untouched by tourists.  Students stay with host families.  Up to 6 credits. 

The four-week KIIS Ecuador program has a service-learning focus that matches student skills to community needs while exposing them to different cultures, giving them opportunities to build leadership skills, and allowing them to solve community problems in the areas of health, education, conservation, and social entrepreneurship. Students will work on projects with Afro-Ecuadorian and Indigenous communities in their fields of interest as they discover the natural beauty of Ecuador in the Pacific coast, magnificent highlands, and spectacular rain forest regions.  For accommodations, students will stay at ecological places where possible as they travel throughout Ecuador. While there are no language requirements, students are strongly encouraged to acquire at least some conversational Spanish prior to the trip.
