|"The additional literary and cultural opportunities throughout the city of Madrid, have been crucial in my growing appreciation for Spanish, something that I would have sadly missed out on had I completed my studies solely state-side."
Cassandra O'Mahoney '16
M.A in Spanish
Madrid is the European cultural capital of the Spanish-speaking world; it's the natural place to study an M.A. in Spanish. It's also the safest city in the Spanish-speaking world — and one of the most vibrant. July afternoons here are scorching hot, so it's a great place to drink in the culture over a well-deserved tinto de verano. Or, beat the heat by heading indoors to study at the Biblioteca Nacional or to the Reina Sofia Museum to see Picasso's Guernica.
When things begin to cool down in the evening, you can go for a paseo in the footsteps of the authors you were studying the night before - Cervantes, Lope, Pardo Bazán, Martín Gaite and Merino. Later, discover the pleasure of late-night tertulias in street cafés in the city that never sleeps!
