Course Offerings

The partnership with Universidad de Oviedo was developed for students to become immersed in Spanish language and culture. The courses that students enrolled in at the university will reflect this idea. Students will be able to participate in either the full Spring semester, or a two-month course during the Summer term.

Oviedo Campus

Spanish Language Requirement: Webster University students wishing to study abroad on exchange at Universidad de Oviedo and earn language credits from the International Languages and Cultures Department must have successfully completed 4-college level semesters.

Webster University students who study abroad on exchange at Universidad de Oviedo will receive academic credit at Webster University for the courses. Depending on the type of program, and the students' major, these credits may vary and are subject to review by individual departments. Students must work with their academic adviser to discuss how courses taken in Oviedo might fulfill their degree requirements.

Universidad de Oviedo may require additional materials to the Webster study abroad application. Additional requirements may include interviews, a language examination, or an additional application.

Students will register locally. The Spanish level of students is determined by previous course work and by testing upon arrival at Oviedo. Students will not see the final grades on their Webster record until the official transcript arrives from Oviedo and is entered onto their record. Due to a difference in academic calendars, this happens several weeks after program completion.

Universidad de Oviedo offers a few classes in English in various disciplines. Some of them could be available to Webster students.

Spring Courses

In the Spanish Language and Culture courses, students can choose five areas from a selection of nine subjects taught by specialists whose contents are structured around issues such as Grammar within a communicative context, Vocabulary, Phonetic Correction, Spanish Literature, Latin American Literature and Culture, and Spanish History and Art.

Spring Course (January-May): 5 language levels: Intermediate I (A2), Intermediate II (B1), Advanced I (B2.1), Advanced II (C1) and Advanced III (C1.1)
