Make this summer memorable by studying in the beautiful city of Oaxaca (pronounced "Wah-ha-ka"), located five hundred kilometers from Mexico City. One of the most picturesque cities in Mexico, it is surrounded by the spectacular Madre del Sur mountains. Oaxaca boasts colonial monuments, archaeological treasures and vast ethnic and geographic diversity, as well as an agreeable climate. Students take intensive Spanish conversation (beginning through intermediate) and Spanish literature courses at the Instituto Cultural Oaxaca, located on the grounds of a gracious 19th century estate.

Students are housed with Oaxacan families, giving them a chance to practice their Spanish language skills and learn more about the Mexican culture and Oaxacan way of life.

This program is offered during the summer semester, and provides transferable credit from CCSF for courses completed overseas. Also, students enrolled in an eligible program may be able to receive state and federal financial aid and scholarships to help defray the costs of study abroad.
