University Blas Pascal, Argentina
In 2011, Samford established a relationship with The Universidad Blas Pascal in Córdoba, Argentina. Blas Pascal (named after the French philosopher and mathematician Blaise Pascal) is the largest private University in Córdoba. UBP offers a special school for foreign students as well as regular University courses. Advanced students will have to prove advanced proficiency in Spanish before being allowed to take regular University courses. UBP offers a wide variety of courses, mainly in Spanish, but also offers some courses in English, primarily in the English department. Internships and service learning opportunities are also possible.
Samford University and The Blas Pascal University have a direct exchange agreement. Up to two Samford students may go to Córdoba each fall semester. Samford students who choose to take courses in Córdoba are responsible for the following: Samford tuition, travel costs to Córdoba, the cost of room and board in Córdoba, and other incidental costs. Although a specific level of Spanish language ability is not required, it is strongly suggested that students have at least an intermediate proficiency in Spanish prior to going to Córdoba, with advanced being preferred. Students interested in applying to UBP should contact the International Studies Director in Brooks Hall or call (205) 726-2741 by April 1.
Fall Term only: August to December
