Enjoy summer in Spain with a dynamic study abroad program in Barcelona. You'll earn 3 credits in 3 weeks from July 9 to July 31 while soaking up Spanish and Catalan culture. CU-Boulder's Dr. Tom Zeiler leads a study abroad program to examine Barcelona and its role on the world stage. You will participate in many excursions and trips, visit culturally significant sites, and gain a greater understanding of one of the world's great cities. The application deadline is February 15, so don't wait!
- What you'll learn...
The course focuses on concepts found in History, Political Science, Economics, Anthropology and Geography in order to examine Barcelona and its role within Catalonia, Spain, the European Union, and the world.
Participants will discuss topics such as terrorism, economic and political integration, trade and finance, peace and security, and U.S. foreign relations and foreign policy.
- Where you'll go...
In addition to classroom hours, students will enjoy the opportunity to see a wide variety of places important to Spanish and Catalonian culture. Students will be able to meet with the U.S. Consul in Barcelona, visit Montserrat, Figueres, Girona and Corbera D'Ebre (a Spanish Civil War site).
Additionally, enjoy traditional Spanish culture at the Barca futbol stadium and learn about Spanish food in a cooking class.
Outside of the classroom, you'll have plenty of time to learn about Barcelona on your own - through the shops and restaurants, the people and the museums.
- Why you should go...
The course counts as upper-division credit. IAFS majors can get three credits towards Functional Area III, Functional Area IV, or Europe/Eurasia. For PSCI majors - the course counts for upper-division PSCI elective credits.
