General Description

The International Studies Program is an undergraduate program offered by the Consortium for Transatlantic Studies (CTSS) in collaboration with Instituto Franklin-UAH

The program’s aim is to promote knowledge and understanding of the historical, cultural, political, economic and social relations between both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. It has a comprehensive international nature since it involves professors and students from different universities around the world. All courses explore specific topics from an international perspective. In addition, classes take place in Spain, so participants can have a unique experience of in-depth immersion into the country’s customs, traditions, language and culture.

The program offers 3 courses per block, out of which the student chooses one of each block. All students will also be enrolled in an “Introduction to Spain” course. They are taught in English and the whole program has a duration of about three months. As it is a short term program that lasts less than 90 days, there generally is no need to obtain a student visa. However, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure that he/she does not need a student visa to participate in the program.

The Consortium for Transatlantic Studies includes the following universities:

The mission of the CTSS is to promote specialized research and multidisciplinary discussion from a transatlantic perspective. The academic program is offered only in spring. It is the result of the research conducted by professors from the different institutions of the Consortium and it offers challenging and interesting perspectives on current international issues.

The CTSS, in collaboration with the Instituto Franklin-UAH, organizes an annual international conference to promote research, dialogue and debate in these areas, exploring new trends and challenges in the area of Transatlantic Studies. The Conference takes place in the fall.

The CTSS accepts new international memberships. If you wish your institution to become a member of the Consortium, please contact Donald Wallace or Marta Walliser.
