Spend four weeks studying the comparative economic evaluation of health, safety, and environmental issues in Europe and the US at the Public University of Navarra (UPNA), a major University of the Navarra region of northern Spain. In daily classes taught by SPEA Professor Kerry Krutilla and Dean John Graham, as well as faculty at UPNA, students learn how to evaluate options for health care delivery, occupational safety and injury control, and environmental health and protection in Europe and the U.S. Students are taught to consider the impacts of policies on all citizens in society.

The rooms are non-smoking, with heating and air-conditioning, private bathroom, kitchen, refrigerator, TV, and free Wi-Fi. Students have access to common areas such as a library, fitness center, game room, vending machines, and coin-operated laundry
