The American College in Spain (ACS) is the first American University in Andalucía offering programs fully accredited in the United States. Students of ACS have a direct path to the US university transfer program or a means to enter top schools in the UK or Spain. They can begin their university career in Marbella and later transfer to a traditional four year university to complete their studies.

Students enrolled in ACS follow the first two years of a US curriculum and then transfer to the USA in order to complete their BA, BBA, or BSc degrees. Utilizing well-equipped facilities and small class sizes, ACS focuses on delivering engaging instruction in an environment that fosters critical thinking and academic success. It aims to provide students with the intellectual and social foundations necessary to prepare them to lead fulfilling lives as competent, committed, and compassionate members of a global society.

ACS concentrates its principle studies in the following areas:

  • International Business
  • Business Administration
  • Economics
  • International Relations
  • Sports Management
  • Political Science
  • IT
  • Accounting
  • Psychology
  • Sports Management
  • Public Relations
  • Marketing

 



ACS offers a US style curriculum within the framework of the American College in Spain university system, which is characterized by its commitment to broad educational goals. In the US system, a student must complete a number of general subjects in a diverse range of disciplines before beginning his or her chosen field of concentration.

The US curriculum is based on a modular system known as credits or credit hours, and students are evaluated by 'on-going assessment', whereby a student knows on a regular basis how he or she is performing.
