What to Expect in Spain
Studying abroad in Spain means immersive cultural excursions, hands-on classes, afternoon siestas, and evenings strolling through winding streets to find your favorite tapas. You will explore UNESCO world heritage sites, wander through acclaimed art museums, and marvel at unique architecture as you stroll through winding streets, all while experiencing the wonders of this diverse country when you study abroad in Spain.
The extensive Atlantic and Mediterranean coastline has made Spain one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, but beyond the veneer of tourism, Spain has a long and complicated history of Roman, Catholic, Jewish, and Arab influences. This mix has produced stunning and varied architecture, a strong tradition of academic scholarship, some of the 20th century’s most influential artists, and a complex sense of modern national identity.
From the modern European cities of Madrid and Barcelona, to the medieval University of Salamanca and the Moorish flavor of Granada, Spain has a place for everyone to explore and better understand Spanish culture, which is far from easy to define. If you’re looking for an adventure, our study abroad programs in Spain will not disappoint!
