Graduate courses for the School of Spanish in Madrid.

In Madrid, students follow a program consisting of six or nine units of credit. The choice depends on academic performance during the summer in Vermont and upon previous studies, needs, interests, and MA degree option. Students will not be allowed to register for the School in Spain if their conduct or academic performance during the summer is judged unsatisfactory.

Courses at the Sede Prim (SPAN) are organized by Middlebury College for its own students. Depending on the degree program and specialization, students will also enroll in courses at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) or the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M). See the current course schedule.

Under advisement from the School in Spain Director, students will be able to choose courses from offerings in Literature, Linguistics, Language Teaching, Culture, Cultural Heritage and Tourism Studies, and Migration and Development.
