Description

Study Abroad Coordinator: Katie Rabbitt Burke (k.burke@neu.edu)

To study in Madrid is to experience more than a classroom – it is to experience the history of Spain and its people. Spain’s capital since 1561, Madrid is the contemporary capital of Spanish culture, finance, and industry. A large, international and cosmopolitan city, Madrid is a city of possibilities. It boasts incredible monuments and museums, including the Museo del Prado, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and the Museo de la Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando. Visitors cannot miss the Iglesia de San Isidro, once the cathedral of Madrid, or the Palacio Real. Madrid is also known for its fountains and elaborate parks, including the glorious Parque del Retiro. The energy of Madrid is in its street life and warm people. API gives students the chance to live and learn in this fast-paced capital city.

Students may participate in the Spanish Language, Business and Humanities Semester Track, or the Spanish Language and Culture Summer Track.

Courses

Semester Curriculum

Students take four classes for a total of 16 NU credits. Offering classes taught in English in both business and humanities, as well as Spanish language courses at all levels, the Spanish Language, Business and Humanities Program is open to beginning, intermediate, advanced and superior level Spanish speakers who want to study abroad in Madrid. Students who have completed more advanced Spanish courses can choose from a wide variety of classes focusing on Spanish culture and civilization that are taught in Spanish. A placement exam determines the language level of each student.

Students can choose courses taught in Spanish from within their language level as well as courses from within the “Courses In English” category. The fall semester begins with an intensive two-week Spanish language course for 4 semester credits. The spring early start semester begins with an intensive four-week Spanish language course for 8 credits. Students are then required to take at least one Spanish language class during the semester. Depending on the term, students then choose 3 additional classes at 4 credits each for a total of 16 semester credits.

Fall and Spring Course List

Summer Curriculum

Students who want to study abroad in Madrid during the summer with API will participate in the Spanish Language and Culture Program at Antonio de Nebrija University. This program consists of 2 classes worth 4 credits per course,  in either the summer I or summer II term. Students take a placement exam upon arrival and are placed into a level based on the results of this exam. All students are required to take the Spanish language course at their level, and then may choose their second course from the Spanish-language electives at their level, or from the English-language electives. Language levels correspond to the European Framework levels. Courses are taught primarily in Spanish, with a limited number of courses available in English.
