Colgate’s study group to Madrid, Spain, focuses on the Spanish language and culture.
The Madrid Study Group offers qualified Colgate students the opportunity to live and study for one semester in a dynamic and culturally rich European capital. Designed for junior year students with significant Spanish language ability, successful applicants will seek to perfect their Spanish language skills, acquire a deeper knowledge of Spanish life and culture, and undertake a diverse and challenging academic experience at a private university in Madrid.
Through academic experiences connected with the cultural resources of Madrid, participants will become acquainted with the richness of Spanish painting and the performing arts; and through the experience of living with Spanish families and sharing classes with Spanish students, participants will engage with Spanish culture in the more everyday sense.
Students participate in a homestay program, culturally and linguistically immersing them during their time abroad. There is direct supervision of homestay families in Madrid by a housing coordinator who works with the group’s faculty director, helping to ensure the quality of the linguistic and cultural immersion for students.
