About

Make Fall 2018 the semester you choose to become an expatriate, a person who leaves their country to live abroad.  Why?  Because sometimes we don’t know ourselves--or our country--until we live abroad. When you choose to spend a semester in Madrid, Spain, you will be living the same lifestyle as some of the most famous authors writing in English, such as George Orwell, Gertrude Stein, or Earnest Hemingway.

Walking the streets of Madrid, visiting museums and palaces, students will live in the capital of one of the great European empires, which will anchor lively discussions about nationality and identity.  Coursework includes American Literature 1865-present and British Literature, 1798-present. Far from being disconnected from the present, this literature, combined with current events in Catalonia, allows us to return anew to the continuing consequences of the American Civil War.  Additionally, many 20th century authors decided they wanted to live outside of their countries. They wanted to belong elsewhere, and they wanted to promote a cause.  These expatriate authors often found inspiration in Spain.  As a Study Abroad student, your lived experience of colonial power will help you decide if, how, and when cultures and identities can - or should - be melded.

Our exciting, interdisciplinary coursework immerses us in the language and art of Spain, as well as British and American literature. Join us for an IRL experience of the expatriate life.

In addition, this program offers the unique opportunity for an internship placement. Working in Madrid provides you a chance to truly immerse yourself in the community. From non-profit organizations to architecture firms, ACCENT arranges for outstanding internship and service learning opportunities to give students rewarding connections with local businesses and charities. Upon acceptance into the internship program, a $250 placement fee applies.
