Learn about Hemingway's time in Madrid and his passion for bullfighting, sensuous delights, and man's capacity for dignity in danger and defeat. You will visit the cafes, bars, hotels, and restaurants that he used as settings in novels such as The Sun Also Rises and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Madrid’s unique atmosphere permeates Hemingway’s stories and literary masterpieces.

For your convenience, UMGC coordinates the hotel and excursion arrangements for a flat fee of $650 per student per field study course. This fee will be charged to your student account and covers seven nights of lodging (double occupancy room), as well as local transportation costs and entry to all excursions.
The $650 fee does not include travel to and from the city where the course is held. You must make your own travel arrangements to the course. The fee also does not include meals.
Please refer to the current course syllabus found on the schedule for details about course materials.
You may register for the 3 credit field study course with your local program coordinator or online at MyUMGC. Tuition assistance or financial aid can be applied toward tuition costs. For more information, contact the UMGC Field Study Office at CIV +49-(0)631-534-800, or e-mail email@example.com.
Before completing your travel plans, please verify with your local program coordinator or the Field Study Office at UMGC Europe Headquarters that the course will be held as scheduled. If you drop/withdraw from a field study course after the registration deadline, you will be charged a fee of $100.
A field study course packs all of the 48 contact-hours of other courses into adventure-filled days on location, so you can earn one to three credits at an accelerated pace. In addition, rather than taking place in an education center, a field study course takes place in a historical European city where the subject being studied has its roots. You will visit historical sites and museums as well as participate in lectures that bring it all together for a one-of-a-kind learning experience.
