Dr. Jose B. Fernandez founded FORSPRO (FOReign Study PROgrams) while he was chairman of the Foreign Language Department of Valdosta State University. His goal was to provide students quality and affordable study abroad programs. His idea was not only to provide a quality academic program but also to provide students an opportunity to experience the culture of Spain to the fullest.
For the past 40 years Forspro has been providing dynamic study abroad programs to Spain. Today our goals still remain the same, to go beyond the classroom. To insure the academic integrity of the program, the curriculum is designed by the Academic Directors of our participating American Universities. Most of them teach the courses as well. Forspro is a consortium of universities working together to provide the students the best possible educational and cultural experience abroad.
