Tours and Field Studies for San Sebastián, Spain

Optional tours and field studies are subject to change. Please contact us for more information.

USAC encourages every student to participate in the tours/field studies; however, they are optional and have an additional fee. You may choose to participate for pleasure as a tour or as a one-credit field study course. The field study requires you to complete additional academic requirements, keep a journal, and engage in discussions of the sites visited to better understand their historical and cultural contexts. Destinations may change at the discretion of the Resident Director.

The following are possible destinations, view term calendars for specifics. Due to continually evolving COVID-19 regulations some tours and field studies may or may not be available during the term you choose to study abroad.

Madrid Tour and Field Study

You will spend four days discovering the artistic and historic charms of Madrid and the surrounding areas. You'll take a daylong bus trip to the medieval city of Toldeo, which is known as the city of three cultures due to those that coexisted there during the Middle Ages: Christian, Jewish, and Muslim. You'll take another day trip to Segovia, famous for its Roman aqueduct and castle, and the Valley of the Fallen, a monument to those fallen in the Spanish Civil War. Additionally, we will visit many sites of interest in the city of Madrid, including the Prado museum and the Royal Palace.
