The Marquette en Madrid program is one of the nation’s oldest study abroad programs in Madrid. Active since 1965, our program offers a wealth of experience. A total immersion program, Marquette en Madrid is ideal for students desiring to increase their Spanish linguistic aptitude while simultaneously learning about the culture as they engage in:

Courses at Reunidas and the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. The Reunidas consortium, a group of U.S. universities affiliated with the Universidad Complutense, offer courses for U.S. study abroad students taught in Spanish by Spanish faculty on the Universidad Complutense de Madrid campus. The courses are tailored to meet the typical requirements of a U.S. student’s curriculum. Students are also strongly encouraged to directly enroll in a course or two from the regular Complutense curriculum with Spanish students.

Homestays. Accommodations are arranged for students in Spanish homes throughout Madrid. Students can practice their Spanish skills and gain firsthand experience in Spanish culture.

Excursions throughout Spain. Students gain experience by exploring the streets and sites of some of Spain’s oldest cities through four program-sponsored trips each semester.

Students are connected with a local organization in the community. All students are encouraged to pursue community service. Placement support is offered by the on-site resident director.
