Program Overview This program is highly competitive and will accept only a limited number of applicants. Interview appointments and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of the faculty director.

Immerse yourself in rich Spanish cultures as you observe in schools, interact with teachers and students, and explore the country from cultural and mathematical perspectives. This program begins in Seville, the capital of the Andalusia region in southern Spain. Then we move to Madrid, the vibrant Spanish capital located in the heart of the country. Finally, we explore Barcelona in the Catalonia region in the northeast corner of the country along the Mediterranean coast.

Examine how European schools build communities of learners through multiple classroom visits. Get to know the teachers and students at our primary school site in Barcelona through extensive work that provides the context for a Service Learning Project connected with EDUC 390. Additional school visits in the surrounding area provide a glimpse at the diversity in European school systems.

Seville, Madrid and Barcelona provide stunning backdrops to study the geometry and measurement concepts found in elementary and middle school mathematics curricula. Whether enrolled in MATH 253 or MATH 240, learn to see the mathematics that surrounds us through a critical look at the architecture, art and historic sites of this exciting cities. Apply the concepts from class as we visit must-see sights.
