To complete our Bachelor of Arts in History, you will study at both of Saint Louis University's campuses: Madrid and St. Louis (at least one semester in the U.S:).
Few places in the world offer as many Spanish history courses in English as the Madrid Campus. Our internationally recognized faculty have expertise in Medieval, Early Modern and Modern European history, with special interests in the interaction of Spain's Christian, Jewish and Muslim cultures, Colonial Latin America, the Spanish Civil War and the Classical Hellenistic World. At the campus in St. Louis, academic areas of specialization include the 20th century American West, immigration, women's civic and social movements and the African American experience.
History is the basis of all human experience and consequently forms an essential part of our understanding of everyday life. It provides the social and cultural resources necessary to approach the challenges of present-day society and our membership in a global community.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
