Study abroad in our innovative multidisciplinary Program in University City of Madrid, Spain
From 15 to 26 July 2024 (or from 1 to 26 July 2024)
Spain Center for International Education (SpaCIE) launched the Summer School “A Multidisciplinary Approach to Climate Change” (CCSS) in 2021. The CCSS is a unique opportunity to broaden your knowledge by attending classes with world-class university professors and expand your horizons in one of the most beautiful and lively cities in the world.
Don’t miss the chance to embark on the 4th edition of the CCSS, a journey that can change your life! Gain new perspectives on humanity’s most pressing problem, on your studies and on your career. Make new friends from all over the world. Immerse yourself in Spanish culture, cuisine, and life. And, in the process, discover something new about yourself.
Enroll in an exclusive 2-week study program (with a workload equivalent to 3 ECTS credits) that offers a high-quality multidisciplinary course, taught in English by leading professors from numerous disciplines (Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Humanities, Law, Physics, Political Science, and Sociology) and by the best professionals in the business world.
You can also follow a 4-week study program (with a workload equivalent to 6 ECTS credits) by taking one of the following courses from July 1-12, 2024:
- Our Skills Summer School. This is a good option for students interested in improving their writing and speaking skills to succeed in their academic and professional careers.
- Environmental Economics and Policy Analysis: The Theory of Externalities and the Economics of Pollution Control from our partner UAM’s Summer School of Economics and Business. This 3 ECTS credit course is organized entirely by UAM without our participation but is open to our students. It would be a great complement to the university-level climate change overview of our 2-week curriculum by providing an in-depth preview of the economic analysis of environmental policies with two additional initial weeks. This is a good introduction for students interested in the economics of climate change.
