Our Madrid Seminars

In Madrid we offer classes in writing, literature, film, Spanish language and more, at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Earn up to six hours of transferable credit, or attend non-credit, simply for personal enrichment. You don't have to be a degree candidate or even a UNO student to participate. Many students from other universities take advantage of our expertise in study-abroad programs to enhance their educational and cultural experience while contributing to their degree credits.

In addition to the excellent classes, the program will sponsor tours of local site, including the famous Museo del Prado, one of the oldest and most respected art museums in Europe, featuring extensive collections of Dutch masters and Spanish art, including Velázquez, El Greco, and Goya. Other excursions will include El Museo Thyssen, hailed as one of the finest private art collections in the world, and the historic towns of Segovia and Toledo. In addition to program tours, many of the instructors will include excursions as part of their course work. The program schedule also provides ample time for participants to visit other cultural sites such as the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sophia, Madrid's excellent museum of modern art, and nearby towns like Avila, Salamanca, and El Escorial. Braver participants will even have time to attend the running of the bulls in Pamplona.

We are fortunate to be partnering with Suffolk University, Madrid Campus, who will be providing classroom space, computer center, lecturers and guides, and lots of expertise in introducing Americans to the rich cultural and intellectual history of Spain and its capital. Their faculty will augment the American and European writers and scholars that will be teaching in UNO's program. The campus is located in la Ciudad Universitaria, two blocks from metro stop Metropolitano, and three blocks from Colegio Mayor Chaminade, our dormitory facility.

The dormitory provides a wide range of services, including full pension (three meals per day) private rooms with baths, ethernet connections in the rooms (for students who bring their laptops), complete computer center, two TV lounges, swimming pool and gymnasium, theater for film screenings and performances, and pub.
