World Scholars - Madrid is an exclusive opportunity for students admitted to the University of Delaware World Scholars Program.
Program Description

The University of Delaware World Scholars Program is a four-year program for internationalizing a student's undergraduate career. Choosing from a wide range of majors, World Scholars are supported in their studies with internationally-focused academics, experiences, and opportunities that will prepare them to live and work anywhere in the world.

Class of 2027 UD World Scholars will study abroad twice, including fall semester of their freshman year in Greece, Italy, Spain or New Zealand, and in any of 40+ destinations during their junior year.

World Scholars in Madrid, Spain will experience their freshman fall semester enrolled in UD courses at our partner institution, St. Louis University - Madrid (SLU-Madrid). Madrid, Spain’s capital, is an extraordinary city. One that features spectacular fountains, grand boulevards, and a maze of streets. A city that boasts the world’s finest art museums, most loyal fútbol fans, and late-night dinners. It’s a cultural crossroads—founded on the Moorish fortress that has become a modern-day, trend-setting melting pot, Spain’s political and economic engine.

And Saint Louis University’s Madrid Campus—SLU-Madrid—is an extraordinary place. As the international campus of Saint Louis University, you will be studying with students from over 60 different countries. SLU-Madrid students will expect you to learn about their cultures and ways of thinking. And they will learn from you.

UD World Scholars will live in a privately-run residence hall, "El Faro," located within a 10-minute walk of SLU-Madrid's campus. Scholars will reside on the same floor in double rooms, with other Scholars as roommates. A dining hall is located within El Faro, in which students will be able to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Lunch may also be eaten, weekdays, on the campus of SLU-Madrid.

Students in this program will also benefit from the time and expertise of additional staff in Madrid who will serve as staff support to the students and as a liaison between the University of Delaware and faculty and staff at SLU-Madrid. This staff member will also gather students on a regular basis and will provide ongoing communication regarding planned excursions and special opportunities that take advantage of this incredible geographic location.

The Program Fee includes housing, medical insurance, some meals, airport transfers in Madrid, orientation week activities, numerous excursions throughout the fall, opening and closing celebrations, and full access to all SLU-Madrid facilities and activities.

It does not include the cost of a Spanish visa. CGPS will assist students in applying for a student visa but students should budget approximately $200 for this.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Madrid. Students who wish to travel with the UD representative must book the recommended flights and are encouraged to do so via StudentUniverse:

This course analyzes the international dimensions of politics. It is divided into three parts. The first part offers a broad introduction to international relations theory. The process of globalization has altered our understanding of politics and the nature of international political interaction. While the traditional view of politics was state-centric, recent international developments have changed this perspective, adding new global actors. Students will investigate these changes, looking at different theoretical approaches. The second part of the course provides an historical approach. The starting point is the Cold War. Students will become familiar with the Cold War as an international system and its consequences. The end of the Cold war opened up a new period which was marked by inter alia humanitarian interventions and the promotion of democracy. The third part of the course explores institutional settings and domestic political conditions that help us to understand the emergence of different type of global leaders. It explores these dynamics against the backdrop of the post 2008 economic crisis. The course also offers an opportunity to debate the current global crisis of political leadership.

POSC 316-071: International Political Economy (3 credits)
Provider Equivalent: POLS 2600: Introduction to International Political Economy
This course is an introduction to the field of International Political Economy. It explores the interaction of economics and politics in global affairs - the struggle for power and wealth within the international system. The main theme of the class is that neither international politics nor international economics can be understood in isolation. The course examines contending IPE approaches, and evaluates them in terms of their relevance in interpreting past and contemporary issues in international political economy, with special emphasis placed on the political and economic dimensions of the post-war international monetary, financial, and trading systems. The course will also contain a healthy dose of study and analysis of both the causes and effects of the current, post-2008 economic and financial crisis. Other topics include globalization, liberal democracy and economic decision-making, multinationals, international development, the New Green Deal, and regional economic organizations. The course aims at helping students to gain a better understanding of the interplay of the political and economic factors that ultimately determine the makeup of our 21st-century International Political Economy.
