Program Summary

At NYU Madrid, the first study abroad program set up by New York University, students experience a vibrant culture that is both heir to European traditions and the point of convergence for New World and other cultures. Madrid is the political and cultural center of Spain and one of Europe's most lively and charming cities. It boasts a history that goes back to the Middle Ages; from the 16th century on, it was the seat of a brilliant royal court. This is reflected in the city's rich architecture and abundance of monuments.

Contemporary Madrid is a clean and efficient city of wide boulevards, outstanding museums, monuments, theatres, and libraries. The city's public transportation-metro and buses-is first rate. Madrid is famous for its restaurants as well as its nightlife. The numerous cafés are frequented by students, writers, artists, and journalists. Because of its location in the geographical center of the country, Madrid is also an ideal base for exploring the rest of the Iberian Peninsula and beyond through a network of rapid, modern bus and rail transportation. Students who have lived and studied in Madrid often look at that period as one of the most transforming experiences of their lives.

"I had so many opportunities to meet people from Madrid, to actually experience and learn about the culture from those who know it best. Also, I had the opportunity to travel everywhere -- I feel I conquered Spain."
