SUNY Geneseo is launching a new study abroad program this summer in Equatorial Guinea.

Students will focus on Spanish language immersion and Afro-Hispanic cultures and traditions, studying in the capital of Malabo. The course is led by Susana Castillo-Rodríguez, assistant professor of Spanish, who regularly conducts research in the country.

It is one of several summer programs led by Geneseo faculty. The others are centered around art, museums, and urban history in the Czech Republic and Austria; exploring early education in Iceland; and world religions and contemporary issues in Rome. The Chamber Singers will also perform on an Italy concert tour, operated for the first time through the Study Abroad office.

Through Geneseo’s many academic partnerships, Geneseo students will also be attending summer programs in Ecuador, Greece, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, France, and Austria.

Summer 2022 saw the first group of Geneseo students return to study abroad after a prolonged hiatus caused by the outbreak of COVID-19.
