Classes will be held at the I/Art Instituto Superior de Arte, an Art Institute located near the Prado Museum.  In order to immerse themselves in Spanish life and language, students will stay with carefully selected Spanish families.



Cultural activities, speakers, and excursions within Madrid will supplement course work. In addition, there will be three major program excursions within Spain, including the San Sebastian International Film Festival in September.



Students pay the 2011-2012 Carleton comprehensive fee, which covers the costs of instruction, room and board, public transportation in Madrid, all group excursions, and most cultural events.

Students are responsible for the cost of books, personal expenses, and transportation to and from Madrid, and personal travel during the seminar. Estimates for expenses beyond airfare run from $400-$500 for ten weeks (around $200 per month). Student financial aid is applicable as on campus. See the Off-Campus Studies website at for further information regarding work contracts, loans, and other financial aid issues.



Applications are available on this website as well as in the Off-Campus Studies office, Leighton 119.

Applications are due by Monday, February 14, 2011 to Mary Tatge, Spanish Department, LDC 340.
