Spanish for the Agricultural Sciences Domestic Study Away

Immerse yourself in the Spanish language in the global community of Philadelphia.

Explore the global community in Philadelphia and immerse yourself in the Spanish language!  Participants will engage in a school gardening service-learning project at a bilingual preschool.

The class will meet for several sessions in Fall 2017 to prepare for the service-learning project. Travel to Philadelphia will take place during Winter Break, January 2 - 5, 2018.

How can I participate?

Participants should fill out the application form before October 20, 2017.  Upon acceptance, the instructors will enroll you in INTAG 297, which is worth half a credit in Fall 2017 and half a credit in Spring 2018.  The one-credit INTAG 297 class requires enrollment in each semester because of the travel taking place on Winter Break between semesters.

The pre-departure planning sessions will be scheduled based on the availability of participants.


The cost of participation is $100, which goes towards covering the cost of transportation, lodging and some meals.  Scholarships are available.

This experience is generously supported by a grant from Penn State Outreach, which is keeping participant travel costs low for this inaugural experience.
