Program Overview

Program Description:
The program in Barcelona offers a full range of courses in English and in Spanish for all levels, from complete beginners to advanced. Students who have never studied Spanish, or have only studied it for two years, and wish to study it, should enroll in Conversation and Composition. Students who have studied Spanish for at least 3 years should consider enrolling in one of our immersion courses. This program is not only designed for all levels of Spanish language experience, but also for students who are interested in learning about the city and the country, not necessarily the language. Whatever their priorities, students come away with a new understanding of their subject matter as well as an expert familiarity with Barcelona.

We offer courses in English for those students who wish to explore the Spanish culture as well as courses in Spanish for those students who are interested in improving their language skills and partaking in cultural immersion.

The international faculty includes scholars and academics, as well as creative professionals - artists, photographers, and writers - who use the city as a textbook, helping the students discover Barcelona from the perspective of the subjects they have chosen to study. Together with program administrators, including Program Deans and Activities Directors, students enjoy a daily schedule that combines intellectual and curricular adventure, cultural enrichment, field trips, guest speakers, activities, sports and, for those who are interested, activities in Spanish and language workshops, - all in a safe, supervised environment. At the end of the program, students can opt to travel to Paris for five days in order to continue in their cultural experiences in France's spectacular capital. See Paris Connection.
