In our four-week, 80-hour intensive “Become a Global Citizen” course we execute an innovative learning model that integrates language with intercultural skills through practice and active implementation. Students will finish the program having significantly increased their Spanish language level while also gaining intercultural competence via our “Global Skills” workshops. We combine the concept of language with cultural awareness and intelligence for optimal communication. Our language teachers are highly qualified, certified Spanish language professors, and our Global Skills workshop facilitator is an expert in the field of intercultural competence. Beyond this foundation students will have hands on learning experiences during site visits throughout Madrid. Also at our undergraduate campus’ cutting edge MediaLab center, they will document their progress through project-based audiovisual workshops each week.

The University Camilo José Cela (UCJC) is a forward‐looking learning institution, uniquely placed to bridge the gap between traditional and modern times. It was founded in 2000 as part of the Educational Institution SEK, whose proven track record in global school excellence stretches back over 120 years. UCJC’s “DNA” curriculum is composed of three fundamental ideas, three “I”s: Interdisciplinary, Innovative and Internationalized approach in teaching, researching and managing internal talent and knowledge. These roots support UCJC’s mission to offer and deliver avant‐garde courses, classes, degrees and methods, in Spain and in Europe. In order to be successful, we have opted to evolve the way we actively plan, think and move.

All five different faculties at UCJC: Health, Communication, Education, Architecture and Technology, Law and Economics, believe in providing a full‐student experience. Modeled after the quintessential American student campus, the Villafranca undergraduate campus constitutes a community which provides the optimal environment crafted for learning and living. For its graduate students the UCJC recently inaugurated its new headquarters, providing state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of Madrid’s city center (Almagro). The prime urban location connects students with a variety of professionals, organizations, corporations and NGOs.
