About the Program

Program Description

Put your Spanish language skills to daily use while gaining work experience that will set you apart as a future job candidate. The Study + Internship program in Madrid allows you to make progress toward your degree while gaining practical skills in fields such as business management, communications, design, engineering, finance, hospitality, information technology, journalism, marketing, mathematics, political science, urban planning, and more. Courses are taught in English and Spanish. Learn more about the benefits of a CEA internship.

Program Structure

You’ll enroll in an internship seminar course that includes an academic seminar and an internship placement. The internship seminar meets for 12 hours and you’ll spend 150 hours at your internship placement. Together, your seminar and internship placement are worth 3 credits/162 contact hours. In addition to your internship placement, you will enroll in a 3 credit/45 contact hour Spanish language course. In total, you will earn 6 credits/207 contact hours.

Your internship placement hours may take place Monday – Friday; the exact time of day and days of the week will be determined when you arrive. Spanish language classes also meet Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

We strongly recommend that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements. High intermediate working knowledge of Spanish is a requirement for an internship placement in Madrid.

The internship placement process will involve two video interviews: a screening interview with your internship specialist and a job placement interview with the onsite placement coordinator. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.

Upon placement, you’ll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. Prior to departure, you will take an online language placement exam to determine your language level and will be enrolled in the appropriate Spanish language course. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school 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.
