Program Description

Say hello to Alcalá, a small Spanish city located in the heart of Spain. From its 16th-century buildings that house UNESCO World Heritage site Universidad de Alcalá to the birthplace of Miguel de Cervantes (who penned "Don Quixote"), Alcalá oozes history and culture, making it a wonderful place to study abroad.

Bring your advanced Spanish language skills to Alcalá, where you'll take courses in literature, art history, phonetics, medical Spanish, history, and more - all delivered in fluent Spanish. Local instructors will teach your lessons in CIEE's partner school, Universidad de Alcalá, in intentionally small classes to polish your Spanish and give you in-depth insight into Spain's rich history and culture. Outside the classroom, you'll have the opportunity to visit the Magisterial Cathedral, eat your fill of tapas, and see Spain's largest urban colony of storks that live atop numerous classical buildings around Alcalá's main square.
