Spain Summer Study Abroad 2020

On this study abroad course to Madrid, Spain, you will take a summer course at Saint Louis University – Madrid campus Monday through Thursday.  Each weekend, we will investigate the history, architecture, and art of Islamic Spain throughout the country.  This class invites you to understand Spain’s past and its present culture by exploring both historical and contemporary contexts.  We will examine art history, cultural history, and religious history in order to analyze Spain from medieval times, the Reconquista, to the formation of the modern state, to the perception of Spanish identity in present times.

Students traveling abroad will fly to Madrid, Spain from May 25 – June 25. During the course of our visit, we will have opportunities to take a summer course for credit in English, sample the local cuisine, take weekend trips, and have free time to explore and experience life in Europe. This course will count for ECCE Engagement Experience or for ECCE Global Awareness.
