Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia
The Universidad Católica San Antonio (UCAM) is a private university located in Murcia in southeastern Spain. Founded in 1996, UCAM offers undergraduate and graduate academic programs taught by faculty and researchers engaged with the quality of the education provided. The university is characterized by a firm commitment to Catholic orthodoxy and the moral and social doctrines of the Church. UCAM aims to contribute to the transmission of human knowledge and the development of research, from the critical, responsible and creative freedom of the person, according to gospel principles. UCAM developed a system of quality management applied to teaching, research and services to ensure the human relations among all members of the university community in order to make more effective educational work and research.
UCAM offers study of undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees (includes Master's programs and Ph.D. programs) in areas of:
- Arts and Humanities
- Communications and Social Studies
- Business and Legal Studies
UCAM is located in Guadalupe just outside the city of Murcia. At the heart of the campus is the Monastery of Los Jerónimos. The monastery forms the main administration building, which thus resembles a cloister in structure: four hallways forming a rectangle around a central open courtyard. The school's chapel is part of the original structure. Also present are several newly constructed buildings housing classrooms and faculty offices.
Located in the southeast of Spain, the Region of Murcia is characterized by mild temperatures and long hours of day light. Here, as in a small continent, a variety of environments and landscapes offer endless possibilities to the visitor. Beaches, rural areas, cities, traditions, folklore, culture, sports and health mix together in a dynamic and active touristic offer.
It is possible to apply for several scholarships.
The language school offers courses of English, German, Italian, French, Portguese and Chinese. It is also possible to learn Spanish and prepare for the DELE exam (117-170EUR).
