Since 1972, Proctor students have had the opportunity to live alongside a Spanish host family while studying Spanish language, literature and history in the ancient Roman city of Segovia, Spain. Rather than experiencing Spain through the transitory lens of a tourist, Proctor en Segovia students live with host families, immersed in the language and culture.
The nine week abroad experience affords a complete language and cultural immersion, as Proctor’s teaching faculty in Segovia combine classroom instruction with weekly excursions, both locally and throughout Spain's diverse regions, in order to craft a uniquely challenging, and equally rewarding experience for ten students each trimester. They navigate Segovia’s winding streets to Proctor’s classrooms on the Plaza Mayor and take local buses to their afternoon activities. Students take classes taught by Proctor faculty on Spanish history and culture, creative nonfiction writing, and the Spanish language.
