Program Description:


  • VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE! Contact us for more information
  • Gain professional experience
  • Work alongside international colleagues
  • Live for six weeks in a different country


Gain first-hand knowledge and professional experience through global experiential opportunities. Learn and work alongside international colleagues in a variety of cultural settings, build your international network of friends, and prepare for today's rapidly changing global society. These six-week, unpaid internships take place each year during the CU Denver downtown campus summer term.

Whether you wish to improve your resume, fulfill educational requirements, or accomplish life-long dreams, internships abroad are an essential component of a student's educational experience and represent a vital link to successful career preparation and personal development. As global market economies become increasingly interdependent, employers are looking to hire new employees who have international experience and who understand multi-cultural environments.

Spain and Portugal together make up the Iberian Peninsula, the westernmost of the three major peninsulas of southern Europe. Andalucía was the launching point for the discovery of America, and Sevilla became the main port for the imports of gold from the New World during the 16th and 17th centuries. A peaceful transition to democracy following the death of Dictator Francisco Franco in 1975 and rapid economic modernization (Spain joined the EU in 1986) gave Spain a dynamic and rapidly growing economy and made it a global champion of freedom and human rights. It boasts charming cities and towns such as Huelva, Cadiz, and Cordoba and takes pride in its ancient monuments as well as futuristic architecture. Spain today is the second most popular destination in the world for study abroad programs.
