Program Overview

Program Description:
New for 2013, the KIIS summer program in Barcelona integrates traditional classroom setting with the use of the city as an open classroom. The architecture of Antoni Gaudi marks the 19th century city, and Barcelona has long been home to innovative creativity, notably Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro, and Antoni Tapies - all of whom have museums dedicated to their work. As a modern metropolis, Barcelona also boasts a modern subway, beachfront, Olympic village (1992), hiking trails, and easy access to other Spanish cities, as well as other European centers.

Classes may include walking tours, museums, galleries, cafes, and parks. Activities also include visits to the City of Barcelona Museum with its archaeological center, a classical Spanish guitar concert in a gothic chapterhouse, and a visit to the monastery of Montserrat, pilgrimage site since the 11th century, which has spectacular views of the mountains and valleys. Knowledge of Spanish not required.

All courses will make use of local and regional resources and courses will be taught by qualified Mexican faculty.
Setting Description:
In Barcelona we stay at the Torre Girona residence hall, next to the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. The residence hall is in the Les Corts district, once part of the extensive lands of the royal palace of the Spanish monarchs. The area is filled with open spaces, parks, and a few museums. Students stay in double rooms. Each room has its own kitchenette (small fridge, stove, and cooking utensils) and bathroom. The rooms are also air-conditioned and have internet access. Sheets and towels are provided.
