Students can enroll in the following tracks:

  • Fall, Spring and Academic Year: Spanish Language and Culture: provides an intensive, in-depth experience in the Spanish language, culture and society, and is designed for students with a background in Spanish who are eager to improve or achieve proficiency in their language skills.  Fall semester students will also participate in the Centro Británico/Centro Español (CBCE), a one month Spanish language program before university courses begin.
  • Spring and Academic Year: Direct Enrollment: allows students to take university courses in their major field of study.  Courses are available in both English and Spanish. Students must take at least two courses in Spanish.
  • Spring Semester: Students can combine the Spanish Language and Culture Program and the Direct Enrollment Program. At least two courses must be in Spanish.

Spanish Language and Culture Program Courses

Students who complete the Spanish Language and Culture Program earn academic credit equal to twenty to twenty four credit hours.  Rollins students who are majoring in Spanish may apply up to three of their courses in Oviedo with the exception of Spanish Literature (can count towards major elective credit, not major core credit).  Rollins students minoring in Spanish may apply up to two of their courses in Oviedo.

All students enroll in five courses in Cursos de Espanol Para Extranjeros (CEPE) at the University of Oviedo. All of the courses are taught in Spanish, and receive four semester hours of credit.  A full list of Rollins course equivalencies for these courses is below so that students can easily see how these courses will count at Rollins.

Fall Semester students enroll in a one-month Spanish language immersion course at Centro Británico/Centro Español (CBCE), a small language school in Oviedo.  You will enroll in either OVD 311 or OVD 411, depending on your Spanish level, and earn four (4) Pass/Fail credits for this course.
Spring Semester will also enroll in a 2-credit course at CBCE. The course will meet for 2 hours a week for 15 weeks. You will enroll in either OVD 311 or OVD 411, depending on your Spanish level.

Direct Enrollment and Combination Program

Students who complete the Direct Enrollment program receive a total of eighteen to twenty-two semester hours credit for the Spring Semester (combination of DE and language and culture classes), and approximately forty semester hour credits for the Academic Year.  Spring semester classes begin at the end of February and run until the first week in June.  Courses are available in Spanish and English.  Courses are available in a variety of disciplines, including:

  • Art History
  • Biology
  • Business Administration 
  • Chemistry
  • Computer Science (options in English)
  • Economics (options in English)
  • Education
  • Geography
  • History
  • Linguistics/Literature (options in English)
  • Mathematics
  • Philosophy
  • Physics
  • Psychology


Students may also take a combination of Spanish language and culture courses through Cursos de Espanol Para Extranjeros (CEPE) and standard direct enrollment University courses in either Spanish or English.  All students must take at least two courses in Spanish.

Transfer of Credits: Students participating on this program will need to seek the appropriate departmental approval for all major/minor requirements and approval for General Education Requirements through Student Records. All courses on this program appear on the Rollins transcript as transfer credits and the grades are factored into the Rollins GPA. The only exception are the courses taken in the fall semester at CBCE: OVD 311/OVD 411 which will appear on the Rollins transcript as Rollins pass/fail courses. Students who successfully complete this program through Rollins will receive an official transcript from University of Oviedo. It can take up to 3 months to receive the official transcript.

Faculty and Staff: Classes are taught by specialized Ph.D. lecturers from the University of Oviedo.  They offer individual tutorials to their foreign students. In addition to their academic degree, experience and interest are also taken into account in the selection of teaching staff for this program.  Student helpers collaborate in the recreational and cultural activities, and as a result, foreign students settle easily in Oviedo's university life.  Our Faculty Director is Dr. Francisco Borge and our Resident Director is Ana Bugallo.
