About

The small, cobblestone streets of Alcala de Henares are only 30 minutes away from Madrid but will transport you back to a different time.  Pitt in Spain offers you the chance to live and study in this historic city while improving your Spanish skills.  The atmosphere of the small and managable city combined with your Spanish host family will leave you feeling like a true Spaniard by the time your program is over.  

Courses are hosted at the Franklin Institute of the University of Alcala, one of the oldest universities in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  With the option of participating in the June, July, or both sessions, you can earn up to 12 credits towards a Spanish major, minor, or European Studies certificate.
