What makes us different

what we offer

Mentors

Your mentor will be a university student, your age, who will be there for you throughout your time in Spain. Your mentor will organize activities, travel with you, and support you as you navigate your new surroundings.  Our peer mentor program is rated by our students as one of the best things about Tufts-Skidmore Spain and 100% effective in helping them to make local friends and to understand and integrate into Spanish life.

Intercultural Mentoring

We will offer you ongoing intercultural mentoring and training throughout your semester/year, designed to enhance your ability to act competently and ethically in response to cultural difference. Our program operates on the belief that in addition to acquiring culture-specific knowledge about Spain and its peoples, you should also develop general intercultural/global citizen skills and attitudes that can eventually be transferred into the professional sphere.

Diverse Academic Choices

Take classes at local universities alongside Spanish peers, enroll in innovative program classes offered at the beautiful Tufts-Skidmore Spain campuses in Madrid and Alcalá de Henares, study at prominent art and dance academies: You choose! No matter how you decide to structure your academic experience, we will encourage you to use the knowledge gained in the classroom to become more informed global citizens and to expand your intercultural horizons.

What Our Students say

“The Tufts-Skidmore Spain program is like no other. The experience abroad is so much more than just the classes- it’s the friends you meet and the strangers who become family. Everything you’ve ever wanted to do or learn was an option with the help from the program staff. I wouldn’t trade my experience abroad for anything!”

“Quise ir a España desde los 11 años. El programa de Tufts-Skidmore en Alcalá superó mis expectativas y cambió mi vida para mejor. Los directores y profesores del programa me hicieron sentir como en casa. Aún sigo en contacto con la mayoría de las personas que conocí durante mi tiempo en Alcalá. Ahora puedo conversar en español con fluidez y utilizo la lengua con frecuencia en Nueva York. Estoy eternamente agradecida por la oportunidad por haber podido ser parte de este increíble programa.”

“I marveled at how close is Spain to Africa. I learned a lot about Al-Andalus and the relationships between the Spanish, French, and Africans, and between Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.”
