The course is designed to maximize student opportunities to discover Madrid and Spanish culture. Students will be asked to view films and read supplemental texts prior to the commencement of the course and will submit a graded paper three weeks after the end date of the course. Thus, students will not have assignments while in Spain and are encouraged to explore Madrid when they are not in morning classes. The program includes a group day trip to the historical sites of Avila and Segovia. Students will also have the option to participate in a weekend excursion to Cordoba (the cost is additional to the program cost).
Students may stay in Madrid an optional third week beyond the two week course (with program arranged lodging). All participants may register for other courses at the SLU Madrid campus. The anticipated two-week program cost is $1,500 and the anticipated three week program cost is $1,800. The program cost includes accommodation with a host family, breakfast, use of SLU Madrid campus facilities, the group excursion to Avila and Segovia, and international student insurance. The facilities at SLU Madrid and all host families have Wi-Fi. The cost does not include airfare (which participants will need to arrange independently), tuition, lunch and dinner, individual transportation, the weekend excursion to Cordoba, or entry fees for tourist attractions other than Avila/Segovia.
