Imagine life where the days are long on sunshine, and the evenings are full of the colors and sounds of people who enjoy life to its fullest. Based in festive and modern Madrid, the SU program explores the entirety of Spanish culture. You'll begin with one of several distinct Signature Seminars. Your homestay family will introduce you to the language and customs of Spain at home, plus our cultural activities and service learning programs will further immerse you in your new surroundings.
The SU Madrid program also offers specialized programs in immersive Spanish language and in business.
Students are encouraged to enroll in fall, spring, or summer semesters! During the Madrid Summer Session, students enroll in 3-9 credits.
Internships are also available for 1-3 credits in a variety of fields. In fall and spring, students must be enrolled in the semester program in order to take part in an internship.
A truly cosmopolitan city, Strasbourg is rich with social and cultural options—but still small enough for you to feel at home. The SU Strasbourg program is designed to make the most of all that Strasbourg offers. You'll learn from international faculty members who are professionals in politics, diplomacy, and law. The pre-semester Signature Seminar introduces you to Europe through travel, lectures, and encounters with politicians, teachers, and activists. Course-related field study offers further European travel opportunities, and internships at European institutions allow you to gain invaluable hands-on experience during your time in Strasbourg.
The SU Strasbourg program also offers specialized programs in intensive French language and music performance.
Internships are also available for 1-3 credits in a variety of fields. Students must be enrolled in the semester program in order to take part in the internship.
The program begins with four weeks of intensive Spanish language study at the CEDEI Institute in Cuenca, Ecuador (optional for students with four semesters of college Spanish, required for students with three semesters of college Spanish). A small, artsy city, Cuenca is known for its breathtaking mountain geography and the warmth of both its climate and people. After the Cuenca program, you'll spend the remainder of your semester in Santiago, with your choice of classes at local universities.
The Santiago program begins with the required Signature Seminar, Contemporary Issues in Chile and Latin America. You will continue language study in Santiago, and enroll in at least one non-language class taught in Spanish at affiliated Chilean universities and/or classes at the SU Center.
The SU Santiago program is designed to maximize immersion and language acquisition through homestays, interdisciplinary field study, and enrollment in regular semester classes taught in Spanish at the Universidad de Chile and Pontificia Universidad Catolica. SU Abroad students enroll in classes alongside Chilean students in a wide range of disciplines. Both undergraduate and graduate students have the option to participate in a professional internship.
