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 venture outside the familiarity and comforts of their own environment. During this experience, they may gain a new perspective on international affairs and a greater 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 be an essential stage in a student's education, as well as a base for a greater appreciation of one's own country.
