Overall Experience
I learned a lot about myself and how to be self-sufficient in a large city. I also learned how to take public transportation really well. Because of the location in Madrid I also was in the perfect spot for access to travel around Europe in a budget-friendly and time-friendly way. - Trinity University View Entire Review

About

Syracuse University, one of the largest private universities in higher education in the US and one of the first to offer overseas courses in Madrid, is still one of the few that offers courses taught in English and in Spanish for beginning to advanced students. Through Syracuse University Abroad at Syracuse, the SU/Madrid Center since 1970 offers a broad range of fully accredited classes, not degrees, in the Liberal Arts, Social Science and Business.

Students earn Syracuse University credit upon successful completion of semester courses in the following academic options:

Option I: Courses at the SU/Madrid Center take place at the International Institute in downtown Madrid where the Program has offices and classroom space. In addition to Intensive Spanish Language, subjects taught include Anthropology, Arts of Spain, Biology, Communication Studies, Ecology, Economics, Finance, Gender studies, History, International Relations, Comparative and Spanish Literature, Marketing, Political Science, Psycology,Religion and Women’s Studies. Classes are small and use every opportunity to expose students to direct experience through and extensive range of field trips, on site study tours and museum visits.

Option II: Courses at the Autónoma University of Madrid. Qualified students with high level of Spanish enrol through SU/Madrid directly in the Autónoma University of Madrid (UAM) where they may elect from a broad spectrum of courses in the Humanities and Social Sciences, and participate in the cultural and sports activities associated with that University. Classes at the UAM are taught in Spanish and range in size from large lecture to small discussion. Students may also combine courses taught in the SU/Madrid Center either semester with those at the Autónoma in accordance with their interest and background.

Option III: Courses at the Politécnica University of Madrid. In cooperation with the College of Engineering at Syracuse University, qualified students of aerospace, civil, mechanical, electrical, computer, chemical and biochemical engineering or computer science, with high knowledge of Spanish, can enrol through SU/Madrid in the Politécnica University.

The Summer Program at SU/Madrid is based on Spanish Language, Gender Studies, European Politics and Pop Spanish culture, and in Work Experience opportunities. Classes in Madrid are complemented by study tours to historic sites.
