Navarra campus


Applicants should have successfully completed a minimum of 60 credit hours and have a minimum GPA of 3.0. In addition, students must have successfully completed (or have credit by examination) for SPN 327G (Advanced Grammar and Composition), or equivalent, by the semester of participation. The application for this program requires a language evaluation. This program is restricted to students in the College of Communication.

Courses and Credit

The program at the University of Navarra offers a full array of courses, but students are expected to focus mainly on communication course work, but may choose courses from other areas of study at the university as well. Students sit in regular University of Navarra classes, and although some classes are taught in English, most are taught in Spanish. Courses are offered in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, and Radio, TV, Film, but many other courses are also available. Courses in two specializations may also be of interest to students: one in Fashion, Creativity and Trends, and another in Organizational Communication. 

Please refer to "My Credit Abroad" to see an updated list of University of Navarra courses that have established UT credit equivalencies.

Spring exchange students may also opt to participate in summer (non-credit) internships with one of the 300-plus Spanish and foreign companies with which the University has agreements.

Information for Exchange Students

The International Relations office at the University of Navarra provides information and resources to incoming exchange students.


Students stay in off-campus student apartments or houses, and may share housing with local students or other international students. The University of Navarra housing office assists students with information on suitable housing arrangements.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

Students may use any federal, state, or institutional aid they would normally be awarded by the Office of Student Financial Services (OSFS), excluding work-study, to help pay for study abroad. Financial aid awards can also be recalculated to cover increased costs associated with study abroad. Additionally, most private scholarships are applicable to study abroad - however, students must confirm that with the donor. Learn more about funding for study abroad.
