George Washington University

The George Washington University Madrid Study Center is located at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM), one of the foremost teaching and research institutions. Students who have the appropriate language level can take advantage of its dynamic teaching by direct enrolling in UAM courses. Students applying to the program are required to have completed four semesters of Spanish language, they are also required to take one Spanish language course during their semester in Madrid, unless they are Spanish native speakers. GWU-Madrid offers a wide range of interesting and challenging courses on Spanish Language and Literature, Spanish, European and Latin America History, History of Art, Spanish Cinema, Political Sciences, Economics, Business, Marketing and Flamenco. The classes are taught not only in Spanish but in English too (Political Sciences, Economics, Business and Marketing).

Internships for credits are available to qualified students at various Spanish international or cultural centers. The academic program is complemented by selected excursions and outings in which the Resident Director or qualified faculty act as guides. Toledo, Segovia, El Escorial, as well as tours of Madrid's famous museums are part of the culturally enriching activities. Two different three-day tours are offered each semester (Andalucía, Galicia, Extremadura, Burgos-La Rioja). Students experience total immersion in the culture by living with carefully selected Spanish families. Students are provided with the UAM ID card which allows them to access any facility or service offered by UAM (wifi, libraries, sports facilities, student associations, etc.)
