The Madrid Campus was founded on a liberal arts philosophy and management approach to education.
The academic program is, in part, a strategic selection of courses from the Boston Campus course offerings. This allows students in the Bachelors Program to complete the first two years of study at the Madrid Campus, before going on to complete their degrees at the Boston Campus. They may choose to take general requirements, some major requirements, and electives for most majors offered by the College of Arts and Sciences, the Sawyer Business School and the New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University.
The academic program has also been developed to provide an ample selection of interesting and challenging courses for Study Abroad Program students. Since the Madrid Campus is an integral part of Suffolk University, all credits and grades earned at SUMC are part of the student's Suffolk University transcript.
The majority of course offered at the Madrid Campus are taught in English. Courses in the Spanish Department are taught in Spanish (with few exceptions). Course lists designate language of instruction: E (English), S (Spanish) or E/S (English or Spanish)
We have designed our site to provide a full description of the Suffolk University Madrid Campus, including information about our academic program, the application procedure, housing options, and if necessary, procedures for obtaining a Spanish student visa.
