About the Universidad Complutense de Madrid

The Universidad Complutense de Madrid offers a program for selected American universities called the Universidades Reunidas Norteamericanas (the "Reunidas"). This program, which is open to all majors, provides students with the opportunity to build on existing language skills through study in the Spanish language.

Courses at the Reunidas are upper division, taught in Spanish, and are directed at the interests of American students. While the majority of the students in the classroom will be American, the courses are taught by Spanish faculty from the Universidad Complutense de Madrid; therefore, teaching methods remain largely Spanish, giving CSU students a Spanish university experience.

CSU students take most of their courses in Spanish language and literature, as well as in the humanities and social sciences. In addition to the courses taken at the Reunidas, CSU students enroll in at least one regular university course offered by three cooperating facultades, or departments, of the Universidad Complutense: Filosofía, Filología, or Geografía e Historia. Students also take a Spanish language support course that begins upon arrival and continues into the fall semester; this course is designed to help students adjust to the language and improve their conversation skills.
