The seaside city of Málaga is home to Dickinson in Spain.
Dickinson College offered its first full-year study abroad program in Spain in 1985 in cooperation with the Universidad de Málaga (UMA). Since that time, Dickinson has expanded its offerings in Málaga and now runs a comprehensive program that focuses on Spanish language and literature, culture, and society and includes internships and courses in economics and international business. Program participants have the opportunity to sample courses offered at the Universidad de Málaga, which has more than ten schools and institutes and more than 50,000 students. For Dickinson students, this is and opportunity to integrate in Spanish university life and to see how the experience of attending a large university compares to that of attending a small liberal-arts college.
