Barcelona Fall 2012

Why Study in Barcelona?

Study abroad in the second largest city in Spain. Colorful and vibrant, with the Mediterranean on its doorstep, it is easy to see the immense popularity of Barcelona. The city’s origins can be traced back to the first century BCE and the Roman colony of Barcino. Two thousand years of history have left their mark on Barcelona’s architectural, artistic and cultural heritage. Its excellent location, international communication, Mediterranean climate and cosmopolitan character make Barcelona the perfect place to study abroad.

Highlights of Barcelona

  • Open to students age 18 and older who have graduated from high school and have completed 12 units of college course work with a minimum 2.25 grade point average
  • Live and study in the city where the Modern Age began
  • View masterpieces of art in their original setting
  • Walk through streets lined with amazing palaces and churches
  • Sample the pleasures of freshly prepared Spanish cuisine
  • Experience the rich patterns of Spanish life in the 21st century

Why Choose this Program?

This unique program is offered to enable students to study abroad while making normal progress toward their degree objectives, and earning fully transferable units in courses taught by community college faculty and guest lecturers. This program is offered in cooperation with several California community colleges and with the American Institute for Foreign Study (AIFS), which arranges transportation, living accommodations, and a wide range of student and instructional support services. Students need not be currently enrolled at one of the sponsoring colleges in order to participate. Units earned in Barcelona will appear on transcripts issued by the participating colleges.
