Program Description:
The University

The Universidad de Deusto is one of the most distinguished academic institutions in Spain. Founded by the Society of Jesus in 1886, Deusto strives to be the meeting place for dialogue between culture and Christian faith. The university prides itself on its close ties with the Basque Country—a natural extension of St. Ignatius’s own links to the region—and aims to protect and promote the Basque culture. The university, with a combined population of 16,000 students, has campuses in both Bilbao and San Sebastián.

Students who go to the Bilbao campus can study in the school of arts, economics, business, philosophy, education, social sciences, theology, social work, or law. The campus, which serves as the main campus of the Universidad de Deusto, is located on the right bank of the Nervion River across the street from the Guggenheim Museum. Its main building, founded about 100 years ago, features cloisters, a striking ceremonial hall, and Gothic and Romanesque chapels. The campus also features an arboretum and offers a beautiful view of the city.
