A leader in Global and Intercultural Education, our program is designed with a strong focus on human rights, intercultural learning, and diversity, with a special emphasis on compelling issues of social justice in Spain. We work to attract diverse students, faculty and staff who support and promote the values of Tufts University and Skidmore College, and who are interested in applying those values in a global setting. We take living abroad itself as an object of study and inquiry, to help our students increase both self-awareness and culture-awareness as well as cross-cultural empathy and compassion. In addition to our academic curriculum, and as part of our intercultural objectives, we offer prestigious internships in a wide range of professional fields, among them human rights, diplomacy, public health, education, and business.
