If you ever thought about getting involved with the Basque language and culture, this is the summer to do it. There are intensive Basque language classes available in July (Basque Country and New York), as well as opportunities to immerse yourself into the culture in a different way by working as an au-pair and living with a Basque family for a while.
For those of you who would like to learn about the Basque Country but need to keep racking up university credits, BSU professor Nere Lete will teach a summer class on Basque cinema at the University of the Basque Country, in San Sebastian. Nere, Assistant Professor and Basque Section Head for the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, will focus her course on Julio Medem, director of the 2003 film The Basque Ball: Skin Against Stone, which documents the views of various political parties in the Basque Country. The class will be taught in English and Spanish.
The application deadline is May 1st and a minimum 2.5 GPA is required. For more information or to sign up for the class, visit the USAC website (University Studies Abroad Consortium).
