Sierra College Offers Spring Semester in Madrid, Spain



Rocklin, CA-Take higher education farther by studying in Madrid Spain, January 22 through April 20, 2014. Registration for this trip is available now.

Every spring semester Sierra College offers students an opportunity to continue their studies while living in another country for three months. Sierra College students have studied abroad in Italy, Spain, France, Great Britain, Australia, Greece, Costa Rica, Viet Nam, Argentina, and New Zealand.

Our program fees, one of the least expensive in the country, cover twelve-weeks housing in a furnished apartment, insurance, program transportation, on-site staff support and more.

Madrid, the largest city in Spain, is often described as the European "capital of joy and contentment." Although the city is a modern business hub, and the political center of Spain, the residents take time to enjoy life with long walks, and lingering evenings with friends over tapas. Madrid, referred to as "the city that never sleeps', is the origin of the Flamenco dance and bull fighting. It offers many entertainments, art museums, luscious foods and wines.

Program Includes

    * Pre-departure services, including pre-departure orientation
    * 12-weeks accommodations, including utilities
    * Arrival care packages
    * On-site staff support including 24/7 emergency support
    * Airport transfers for group flight participants
    * On-site orientation, including walking tours of Madrid and orientation materials
    * Classroom facilities, including computer access
    * Optional cultural programs and excursions
    * Spanish language classes taught by Spanish instructors

Program fee: $6950. Accompanying Faculty: Professor Kathleen Taylor, Psychology and Women Studies and Professor Andrea Neptune, English and Humanities

The Spring Semester 2014 Madrid Program is open to anyone over 18 at the time of application. Participants must be Sierra College students for the study abroad semester. Seniors are welcome.
