Overview

The energetic, artistic, and multicultural city of Madrid is an ideal place to advance your academics. Experience Spain's capital by customizing your study abroad term on the Open Campus Block program. Spend one, two, or three consecutive six-week blocks taking interactive, seminar-style courses across various subject areas.

When class is in session, you'll study at CIEE Madrid near the Puerta de Sol in the historic city center and within walking distance of world-class museums, fountains, parks, shops, restaurants, and one of Europe's largest Royal palaces. Your courses will be combined with a cultural agenda and day trips out of the classroom to help you connect with Madrid's resources and Spanish society.

BUILD YOUR STUDY ABROAD ADVENTURE 

Designed for students who require a flexible study abroad experience, CIEE's Open Campus Block program was thoughtfully structured to be completely customizable. Select one, two, or three six-week blocks per term at any CIEE Open Campus Block location.

Your Destination

Madrid’s influence in politics, education, science, entertainment, media, fashion, and arts makes it an important international metropolis, and the major hub in southern Europe. Spain’s capital city is also its largest, with a historic center dating back to the Habsburg Empire. . A huge variety of tapas bars, dance shows, concerts, parks, soccer matches, bustling neighborhoods, contemporary theater and cinema, and world-renowned art museums make it a lively place to live and learn. Only steps away from the historic Puerta del Sol, the CIEE Madrid is located in the heart of downtown with its vibrant cultural offering.

CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Madrid.

The Culture

Other Excursions & Activities

  • Soak up Spanish culture with museum visits, dance workshops, urban art and graffiti tours, and popular neighborhood visits in Lavapiés, Malasaña, or La Latina. 
  • Is the outdoors more your style? Try kayaking, snow walking, or hiking in the outskirts of Madrid city.

Together with your courses, gain unique exposure to the press rooms of Spain’s leading media, international businesses, world-renowned museums, state-of-the-art clinics, and historic concert venues.

Past visitors to CIEE Madrid classrooms include CEOs, presidents of international nonprofits, film directors, founders of renewable energy initiatives, researchers in clinical psychology, and recently  Spain’s Minister of Culture.

Academic Culture

Each six-week course is a full semester in content, so the pace is accelerated, and the workload is demanding. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Madrid when classes are in session and plan trips for the long weekends in between blocks. 

Class Format

Courses taught at the CIEE Center are typically for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday and meet either two, three, or four times per week, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our learning management system, Canvas.

Course Information

Course Notes

  • Courses are listed below by block and track; course list subject to change. Courses are in English unless otherwise noted. “GI” denotes courses that are offered at multiple CIEE locations. 
  • Use the Course Comparison Tools to compare classes offered across all Open Campus Block programs for each block: 
  • Students studying for three blocks who wish to complete a lab course will be required to opt out of one course to remain within the program credit range. 
  • Many CIEE courses are available in multiple CIEE locations. To help ensure you can enroll in the courses you need, some courses may be facilitated as a Hybrid course by an instructor from a location separate from your own. In a Hybrid course, you will learn either face-to-face or online, depending on your location. However, regardless of your location, you will apply what you learn from the instructor and course materials in your location. Hybrid courses can be identified in the course list as those whose course codes end in “CIEE” – open the syllabus to see the instruction location, if known. 

Hybrid Courses

Most courses are taught face-to-face and offered only for students at one location. CIEE offers some courses in a hybrid format, available to multiple program locations to increase course choices. A hybrid class is taught synchronously in a classroom in one location, and students in the program at other CIEE locations join live online. Hybrid courses can be identified in the course list as those whose course codes end in “CIEE”, and the title will include the location of instruction. Regardless of your location, you will apply what you learn from the instructor and course materials in your location. Co-curricular activities are tailored to each student’s location to promote local, experiential, and intercultural learning for all.

 Academic Projects

  • Academic Projects will be offered onsite (either in-person or remotely) or remotely at another Open Campus Block location, dependent on availability and in compliance with local health and safety regulations. 
  • Academic Project placement will be designed based on the student’s project learning goals, qualifications, resume, and availability of placements in location or within the Open Campus Block network either in-person or remotely. The process is highly individualized and goal oriented. Students enrolled in an Academic Project will receive additional academic support that informs and enhances the placement experience.  
  • Internships and Service-Learning are only available in Spanish, therefore only students with advanced Spanish language ability are eligible; a language assessment will be required. 
  • Students applying for an Academic Project must submit additional materials during the course selection process. 

 Language Classes

  • During course selection students interested in a non-introductory Spanish language course, Internship, or Service-Learning Project will be instructed to take an online Spanish language assessment to determine their proficiency level; enrollment will be finalized on site and is based on assessment outcomes. 
  • Students may add the non-credit “Survival Spanish” course to their course load during the on-site orientation.
