Many classes of different varieties are offered through this program, and Berry students are required to take two 3-hour electives, in addition to the mandatory culture class. Classes will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays. Fieldtrips will be scheduled for Tuesdays and Thursdays. The first weekend is composed of group activities. The following weekends are free for students to explore. The program will offer optional weekend excursions (not mandatory).
Students can choose between a single or double room at Colegio Mayor Padre Poveda. Towels and linens are provided. There is a 24 hour front desk.
All meals Monday through Thursday are provided with the program. Breakfast is also included on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Vegetarian options are available.
$4900; this includes roundtrip airfare, accommodations, 15 meals per week, a health insurance policy, weekend activities (week 1), on-site travel consultant, a farewell party, and an unlimited travel pass on the Madrid subway and bus system. Students should plan to budget a minimum of $900 for extra meals, entertainment expenses, entrance fees to museums, and field trip costs.
There is a $100 per credit hour charge for elective classes, in addition to the program fee. The fee does not apply to the Culture class, so the total is $600 in additional fees. Students pay the program fee directly to the EC; the $100 per credit hour fee is billed to the
student by Berry College.
