The Academic Department at CIS has been structured to most efficiently carry out the different teaching and research activities of the school. The very foundation of CIS itself is built upon the exploration of and integration into the language and culture of Spain, as well as meaningful and fulfilling internships designed to perfectly complement the three major study areas currently offered: Business Administration, Communication, and Liberal Studies.  Each professor is assigned a specific department, which makes coursework coordination and creation a more seamless process, and allows students to better see the connections between subject areas in a more meaningful way.
