Summer in Spain: Registration Opens Feb. 23

by Daniela Villalobos on 02/17/2022


SLU-Madrid plans for an exciting summer ahead, with more than 50 courses for students to choose from — along with internships, volunteer activities, programs for graduate students, and even a science camp for high school students. 

"Our intensive summer courses open international experiences to students who are not able to study abroad during the traditional academic term," said SLU-Madrid's Academic Dean and Director Paul Vita. "We're looking forward to welcoming them to our campus in May and June."

Among the courses available are those one would expect in a study abroad program in Spain: Spanish language, history and culture classes — including dance (flamenco). In addition, though, SLU-Madrid offers a full range of liberal arts courses that fulfill undergraduate core requirements across SLU's colleges and schools, from accounting to theology. SLU's position as an American university in Spain also opens SLU's innovative curriculum to students residing in Europe.

Of special interest are courses for future healthcare professionals. Summer 2022 features upper-level courses in health care ethics, psychology and public health. SLU-Madrid also offers immersive clinical experiences for nursing students and a professional shadowing program for pre-med students, providing future physicians a firsthand understanding of Spain's healthcare system. 

Summer experiences in Spain are not limited to undergraduate students. For nearly 30 years, SLU-Madrid has received international recognition for its Masters of Arts in Spanish degree. This program, offered in June and July, is designed around the busy schedules of Spanish secondary school teachers, permitting them to earn their M.A. over the course of four summers, enriching their knowledge of Spanish language and culture through living in Spain. In addition, SLU-Madrid also is home to international programs developed by SLU's Law School and the Richard A. Chaifetz School of Business. 

The Summer in Spain programs run from May 23 through June 23, 2022; the Intensive Spanish Summer Session, which features SLU-Madrid's prestigious M.A. in Spanish program, runs from June 27 through July 28. More information is available at Summer in Spain
