Program Overview
The city of Madrid received international recognition in 1992 when UNESCO (U.N. Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization) proclaimed it "Europe's Cultural Capital." This location will afford program participants the unique opportunity to visit sites of historic, artistic, literary and cultural significance.

Indeed, strolling through the streets of Madrid is like taking a trip through Spanish history. Students may visit such varied and interesting locations as the Royal Palace, the Prado Museum (one of the world's premier collections of fine art), the Gran Via, and the Centro Cultural Reina Sofía.

Course Information
Students will have the opportunity to earn 6 credits of Spanish language by enrolling in one of the three following course options:

  • SPA 203/204 Intermediate Spanish I and II
  • SPA 204/313 Intermediate Spanish II and Spanish Conversation
  • SPA 313/332 Spanish Conversation and Spanish Civilization and Culture
Students with financial aid eligibility may be eligible to apply for aid to supplement their program. Students should still be prepared to make the deposit, middle program payment, and flight arrangements out-of-pocket, with financial aid to serve as a potential reimbursement. The third and final program payment can be deferred if there is a sufficient award on the way to cover it. Please contact your financial aid advisor with questions on your individual aid award.

Activities Overview
Students will enjoy immersion in the Spanish language and as a result, experience an accelerated learning process. A special feature of the program is the opportunity to live with a Spanish family and to share customs, meals, and other aspects of life with them. Formal classes will be conducted in the afternoon, while other times will be devoted to visiting places of cultural and historical interest in and around the city.

See the Department's website for more details.

UNCG reserves the right to cancel or alter the program format or to change costs in case of conditions beyond its control.

In general, the $400.00 program deposit is not refundable unless the student's application is rejected. If the student withdraws from a study abroad program after applying to the program but prior to the start date of the program, the student will be refunded the program cost, excluding the deposit and any portion of the program cost which is unrecoverable. Even if the student has not yet paid the full program balance, he or she is obligated to pay the Department for any unrecoverable expenses incurred on the student's behalf. If a student withdraws from a study abroad program after the program officially begins, no money will be refunded. If a program is canceled, the Department will refund any recoverable cost. Because full refunds are often not possible, students may wish to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance.
