Medieval City frames your Spanish language and cultural learning

Past internship placements include: The regional Parliament in Castilla La Mancha; The Santa Cruz Museum; Toledo City Hall; Radio Nacional de España.

How would you like to study abroad in a former 16th Century convent in the heart of the historical district of one of Spain’s most beautiful cities? Arcadia’s academic partner in Toledo, The Fundación José Ortega Y Gasset, is within walking distance of the most famous landmarks in Toledo. It offers a wide range of courses from Spanish language, history and art to politics and economics. You can enroll in a semester or summer program.

The Fundación is a degree granting institution focused on strengthening knowledge of Spanish language and culture. It has particular strengths in community engagement and internship opportunities via courses with placements.

Studying in Spain has afforded me the opportunity to see Europe and meet amazing people along the way. In my opinion, every student who has the chance to study abroad should. It will affect you in more ways than you can count. ”

  • This program is designed for students at advanced levels. All courses are taught in Spanish by Spanish professors but the small class sizes help support non-native speakers.

  • If you are interested in experiencing the Spanish workplace in addition to your academic courses, include the internship course as an elective.

  • Past internship placements have included: The regional Parliament in Castilla La Mancha; The Santa Cruz Museum; Toledo City Hall; Radio Nacional de España.

  • You will live and study in a unique setting that is more intimate and manageable than a larger city, yet you can still visit the busy capital of Madrid in an hour.
