Spain Internship Program
The Florida State University Valencia Program is rapidly becoming one of our most
sought-after international programs. The city’s European/Latin setting, two-millennium
history, and new-millennium modernity combined with our state-of-the-art Florida State
Study Center attract students in virtually every field of study. Valencia is an excellent
entrée to both Spanish-speaking and continental cultures, and is a major Mediterranean
port, rich with opportunities in all areas related to sea trade and shipping.
Note: Internship applicants must have an advanced level of proficiency in both
Spanish comprehension and conversation. Total immersion in Spanish language and
culture is part of the internship. Education Interns at the primary and middle school levels
are not required to have a Spanish language background.
Fall and spring students will be required to obtain a student visa. Details are supplied after acceptance
and on the Immigration Information page
of our website. FYA and multiple term students have additional requirements.
