The academic program at Suffolk University Madrid reflects the liberal arts philosophy of U.S. university education. During their first two years of academic work, students normally take courses in fulfillment of the University’s core requirements.

A variety of courses in other fields are also available at the Madrid campus for those who wish to begin course work that will count towards their specific major (specialized field of study). Courses are offered in art history, business, communication, English, history, natural and social sciences, and Spanish language and literature, among others.

Classes are small, so students receive considerable personal attention. Courses at the Suffolk University Madrid Campus are in English, except for those in our Spanish department; therefore, all applicants to the Madrid campus are required to demonstrate proficiency in English. No minimum level of Spanish is required for admission, but completion of Spanish language courses is highly recommended for English-speaking applicants.
