All courses are offered in Spanish by Complutense professors. Students take the required SPANS 4934 - Language, Culture and Society of Spain, a three-credit course, during orientation. Upon completion of orientation, students enroll in four to five courses (12-15 credits). Students choose from Reunidas consortium courses offered for U.S. students, as well as direct-enrollment courses at Universidad Complutense with Spanish students.
The Reunidas consortium, a group of U.S. colleges and universities affiliated with the Universidad Complutense, typically offers the courses listed below to U.S. program participants only (F indicates fall semester; S indicates spring semester). Courses are taught by local Complutense faculty. Most courses carry upper-division credit. Syllabi are available upon request.

Students are strongly encouraged to directly enroll in a course or two from the regular Complutense curriculum with Spanish students. These courses are available to American students on a space-available basis and may require special skills and/or arrangements for enrollment. Typical course offerings include history, literature, geography and philosophy. Students interested in pursuing this option should discuss options with a study abroad coordinator after being admitted. This option is not available to students enrolled only in the fall semester.
