The Hamilton College Academic Year in Spain was conceived in recognition of the continuing need and importance of extended study abroad. Through personal contact with the culture, language, ideals and customs of another nation, American students may escape the insularity and provincialism of their own environment. During this process, they may gain an intelligent perspective on international affairs and a respect for and an understanding of another people. In a world where dialogue and open communication are more necessary than ever before, study abroad continues to represent a significant means of acquiring tolerance toward others and fresh insights into the attitudes and institutions of one′s own country. The Hamilton College program has operated in recognition of the need for study arrangements in Spain whose academic standards are commensurate with those maintained by the finest American institutions. Although the program takes full advantage of the best facilities and teaching staff of the Spanish academic community, it brings to Spain the administrative procedures and pedagogical philosophy that have been employed so successfully at Hamilton.

The mission of the Center for Cross-Cultural Study is to promote our students’ in-depth understanding of Spanish-speaking countries through specifically designed and academically rigorous university-level and cultural travel programs. All of our students cross cultural boundaries to live as members of another culture and thus to learn about others as they learn about themselves. CC-CS believes that a diverse student body enriches each individual experience by guiding students to learn about others as they learn about themselves. In accordance with our mission to encourage our students to cross cultural boundaries, CC-CS promotes equal opportunities within our programs and does not discriminate on the basis of an individual′s race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, physical ability, gender, sexual orientation, or other characteristics. We believe in educating students on cultural tolerance and sensitivity, acceptance of differences, inclusiveness, and how diversity is viewed in other cultures.
