Active Learning Abroad

Pontifical University of Salamanca


The Pontifical University of Salamanca is a modern, private, catholic institution committed to meeting the needs of society. It was founded in 1940 by the order of His Holiness Pius XII to continue the studies of Theology and Canon law that the University of Salamanca had abolished in 1852. Currently, there are 5,000 students and a team of 300 professors, researchers and administration and services personnel. The university offers 21 official degrees. Today, more than ever, we live in a world where there is an excess of knowledge, but also a great lack of understanding. We have developed technologies that make commercial activities easier and facilitate our lives, but at the same time isolate and oppress people, distancing them from moral values, such as effort, and leading them to question our leaders and institutions. The Pontifical University of Salamanca as a higher education institution is dedicated to research and the transfer of knowledge, incorporating excellence and responsibility, and training professionals who will be able to tackle the future with foresight, fairness and charity.

Classes will take place at UPSA and at UPSA partner institution in Salamanca, MESTER.
