SPEND TWO WEEKS OF YOUR SUMMER STUDYING AN INNOVATIVE SHORT-TERM STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM AT UAM IN MADRID!

July 12th-23rd, 2021

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) and Spain Center for International Education (SpaCIE) have created their joint Summer School “A Multidisciplinary Approach to Climate Change” (SSMACC). The SSMACC is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizons in one of the most beautiful and liveliest cities of the world, while studying at a top university. UAM oversees the academic aspects of the program and grants the diplomas and official transcripts, and SpaCIE recruits the students and oversees the logistics of the program.

We invite you to embark on this life-changing journey to gain a new perspective on your studies, make new friends from all over the World, immerse yourself in a different culture, and discover something new about yourself! Join an exclusive 2-week study program that offers a high-quality multidisciplinary course, taught in English by top professors of many disciplines (Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Economics, Engineering, Geography, Humanities, Law, Marketing, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology) and by top practitioners from the business world.

The SSMACC brings together students from all over the World and a few local students in a truly international environment. The course is complimented by social and cultural events, as well as academic field trips.

The SSMACC will take place at UAM’s Faculty of Economics and Business Studies. Check the presentation video of this Faculty:

The SSMACC targets students keen to gain academic enrichment not only in their discipline, but in many other fields through a multidisciplinary approach to Climate Change.

The SSMACC Program can grant 3 ECTS credits to students completing the two weeks of classes in Madrid. It can also grant 6 ECTS credits to students who, additionally to the classes, take a directed study under the direction of one of the professors of the program. In the latter case, students can complete the directed study during their stay in Madrid or, more likely, remotely after they return to their country, under the timing agreed with their supervisor. Under the program of 6 ECTS credits, students also benefit from additional visits to institutions and field trips.
