USC Madrid Center

The USC Madrid Center offers its own fall and spring semester program. Based at the historic Instituto Internacional in central Madrid, students may take regular USC courses in art history, history, international relations, political science and Spanish. These courses are taught mostly by local faculty and some are taught in English. The program offers a strong cultural component including several excursions to different regions of Spain and day trips to sites near Madrid in addition to outings to cultural events in the city. For enhanced cultural insight, students live in a homestay with Spanish hosts. To be eligible for the program, students need to have completed, be enrolled in or test out of at least second-semester Spanish within one year before the start of the program.
