Study Abroad Program of the University of Nebraska Omaha at CIAM
Study Abroad Program of the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO)
In 2019 the University of Nebraska Omaha started its Study Abroad program in Soria. It is an intensive 6-week stay with language and culture courses. The program is based on the activities of Spanish in the community and volunteering, which is closely related to the concept of service-learning.
The program also includes trips to some of the most important cities in Spain, routes through the province of Soria, and cultural activities related to traditional festivals, gastronomy, art and history, among others.
Students receive 6 university credits from their home institution.

One week in our student dormitory and the rest of the time with a host family
Our student dormitory is a comfortable and quiet place to stay. It is very convenient, as it is located in the same complex as CIAM facilities. Staying there is a suitable option to be part of the cultural and university life of a Spanish city, and to share experiences with young people of different cultures. That is why our UNO students spend the first week of their stay at the student dormitory, so that they can become familiar with the Spanish culture through workshops on Spanish life and customs. But we also believe that staying with a host family is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, a unique opportunity to develop linguistic and intercultural skills. Therefore, our students have the chance to spend the rest of the stay with host families.
Our families are special. Soria is a city where everyone knows each other and we know our host families. In fact, they are part of our community and our project. Besides a familiar environment to spend time and talk, they offer students an individual or doubled room, the use of common spaces at the house, a private or shared bathroom, and Wi-Fi connection. The families live very close to the city center and no more than 30 minutes away from CIAM.
We select families after visiting their house, which provides information about the family members and the relationships between them. For us it is important to ensure effective communication with them, as we want our students to feel welcome.
