“MAGES’ interdisciplinary and flexible curriculum offered the opportunity to study international, European, and Spanish relations while also focusing on migration and humanitarian crises.”

“I chose MAGES for its academic rigor, professional focus, and drive to tackle today’s transatlantic challenges.”

“MAGES is the premier program to study Europe, and it allows for a lot of personal freedom in what you want to pursue academically.”
