The Hamilton College Academic Year in Spain was conceived in recognition of the continuing need and importance of extended study abroad.
During this program, students may gain an intelligent perspective on international affairs and a respect for and an understanding of another people. In a world where dialogue and open communication are more necessary than ever before, study abroad continues to represent a significant means of acquiring tolerance toward others and fresh insights into the attitudes and institutions of one's own country.
A distinguishing aspect of the programme is the careful, individual guidance of students in both academic and non-academic areas. This relates particularly to: (1) the extra efforts that are made to find homes well-suited for student lodging; (2) the activities that are planned to ensure ample contact with Spanish students; (3) the arrangement of independent study projects in lieu of regular courses; and (4) a general attitude of flexibility with regard to the needs and desires of individual students.
Internships are also available for participating students. The program is based in Madrid.
