Boston University Madrid University Studies Program (Level III)

Madrid, Spain

For students with a strong command of the Spanish language, this program offers direct enrollment at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and take a core seminar course on contemporary Spain prior to the start of the classes at the University.  Amherst does not award credit for internships, therefore students interested in participating in the internship program must take it in addition to a full course load.  Spanish majors must consult with the department for credit in the major.

Language pre-requisites:

6+ semesters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent required.
