The Madrid Campus was founded on a liberal arts philosophy and management approach to education.

Up to 2 Years in Madrid:

The Madrid academic program is a strategic selection of courses from the Boston Campus course offerings. Students in the Bachelors Program can 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.

4 Years in Madrid:

Starting in Fall 2017, you can earn a BA in Government degree with a concentration in International Relations at our Madrid Campus. This is the first four-year program we've ever offered at Madrid. More >

Study Abroad in Madrid:

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 courses 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 and/or Spanish)

We have designed this Madrid website to provide a full description of our Madrid Campus, including information about our academic programs, the application procedure, housing options, and procedures for obtaining a Spanish student visa, if necessary.
