Explore Spanish language and culture through courses such as literature and economics. Become part of life in Madrid. Secure an internship for academic credit. And do it all speaking only Spanish, which is a requirement of the Hamilton College Academic Year in Spain. 

Learn by Exploring

Students experience Madrid in ways that complement their academics. They may take on volunteer work, take trips led by an art history professor or socialize with their peers from Spain.

Internships for Credit

Students who opt for the program’s internship course are usually the most satisfied with their time abroad. They receive credit for working at least 60 hours a semester at a nongovernment organization of their choice. During a recent semester a Hispanic studies and education major taught a foreign language in a local school and several premed students did an internship in a local hospital.

Academic Mentors

Faculty members help each student select their courses keeping their majors ­– and their intellectual curiosity ­– in mind.
