Málaga, Spain Dickinson offers
three programs in Málaga: 1) a full academic year; 2) a fall or
spring semester only program, or 3) a language-intensive Summer
Dickinson College offered its first full-year study abroad
program in Spain in 1985 in cooperation with the Universidad de
Málaga. Since that time, Dickinson has expanded its offerings in
Málaga and now runs a comprehensive program that focuses on Spanish
language and literature, culture and society and includes
internships and courses in economics and international business.
Program participants have the opportunity to sample courses offered
at the Teatinos campus of the Universidad de Málaga, which has
eight schools and institutes and more than 50,000 students. For
Dickinson students, this is an opportunity to integrate in Spanish
university life and to see how the experience of attending a large
university compares to that of attending a small liberal-arts
college. Internships are available only in the spring
semester to full academic-year students. Please consult the
Center for Global Study and Engagement for more
