Bilbao: Program Highlights

Since 2002, over 500 UMW students have participated in the UMW in Spain program for a summer, semester or for an academic year at our partner institution, the University of Deusto-CIDE. You do not have to be a Spanish major to participate; it is open to all majors. In fact, course offerings address the needs of many students. Some of our most typical students coming on the program are looking to:

    • complete UMW’s Gen Ed Requirements:
      Foreign Language, Experiential Learning or Global Inquiry
    • complete IA major requirement of two courses at the advanced level in a foreign language
    • take courses in the following majors:
      Spanish, Business, Economics, International Affairs, History, Political Science, and more.
    • take courses for elective credit in their major
    • complete an internship
    • experience studying in another country
    • become more fluent in Spanish
