Welcome to SU Madrid!
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, which are aimed at providing the best introduction to Spain and Europe. During that time, you’ll also meet fellow classmates and SU staff and faculty. 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.

This program is for students who wish to take all of their courses at Syracuse University’s Center in Madrid. It offers Spanish language courses at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, along with a broad selection of courses taught in English.
Management students can take classes (taught in English) connected to one of the great European business institutions. IEU offers SU Madrid students a chance to study business in a truly diverse community, providing the international outlook needed to be successful in a global world. All SU Madrid students with a background in management are eligible for this program.
Available for year-long or spring semester programs only, this option is designed for students with advanced Spanish language proficiency who want to take all or some of their liberal arts courses in Spanish at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM). Many students opt to take one to three classes at UAM and their other classes at the SU Madrid Center.
Take science and math courses at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid (UAM) in English, and combine those with courses at the SU Madrid Center. Students will take 2 or 3 courses at UAM and round out their schedule with Spanish language and 1 or 2 courses at the SU Center. For the fall semester, students accepted into this program will receive priority consideration in the Marine Ecology of the Mediterranean Sea and North Africa Signature Seminar.
