About

There’s no better way to improve one’s knowledge of the Spanish language and its customs than by interacting with the local community. Students in Barcelona will have the opportunity to practice their language skills in the classroom and also with native Spanish speakers through language exchange programs and cultural events. Over the course of their time abroad, students can expect to participate in field study trips associated with specific classes, study tours, and day trips, as well as cultural activities like Catalan cooking courses, Flamenco classes, and cava tastings. A city tour of Barcelona and its architecture as well as visits to local markets and enterprises round out the experience. 

Students who participate in the Barcelona Semester Program can choose from a variety of Spanish language, humanities, business and culture courses that range from introductory level to advances. Internships are also available for students as credit or non-credit.
 

To complete the course curriculum, IAU hosts a plethora of guest speakers and lecturers from a wide breadth of disciplines including journalists, musicians, and political activists. Panels and conferences that are hosted throughout the semester allow students to hear a full spectrum of opinions about both Spanish and Catalan politics and lifestyles.
