Choose business and liberal arts courses that align with your academic and personal interests, taught in English and Spanish (English-only during summer terms). Semester students have the option to also enroll in a Spanish language course at the appropriate level of ability, from beginner to advanced. An early-start option (available to semester students) helps you improve your Spanish language skills before the semester starts. Choose your electives from a range of topics that enhance your experience living and learning in Spain's capital.
You'll enroll in 3-5 elective courses per semester and have the option to enroll in 1 language course. Please note: If you intend on taking 5 elective courses, one must be in Spanish. That is, you can take a maximum of 4 elective courses in English. Early Start students enroll in an additional language course. In fall semester, all courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. In spring semester, language and elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits; spring Early Start language courses meet for 90 contact hours/6 credits.
Semester students may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 18-21 credits (up to 321 contact hours). Academic year students may earn 24-30 credits (up to 450 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 30-36 credits (up to 540 contact hours).
Courses may meet in the morning or afternoon, Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.
Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam to determine your language level. You'll be enrolled into courses based on their availability.
It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
