International Study – Barcelona for Undergraduates


Spend 11 Weeks in Europe's Most Exciting City

Barcelona, one of Europe's oldest metropolitan areas and a chief Mediterranean port, sits on Spain's eastern coast 90 miles from the French border. The city is a center of Spanish and Catalan culture and has been called the "Paris of Spain." With its mountainous surroundings and gorgeous view of the sea, Barcelona makes for not only a rich gateway into European culture and history, but a beautiful locale for study and adventure—a great place to spend a semester!

"There is a piece of me that will never leave here."—Gaby Halley, B.S. CM '08

"It is absolutely gorgeous! I get a break in the mornings, and I love just walking through the campus, or sitting under a tree, writing in my diary. The breeze, the environment, the bustling of the people, everything is just so perfect." —Sweta Vajjhala, B.S. CS '08

"Ten weeks went by so fast, but I did so much in such a short time." —Noah Goodwin, B.S. CS '10

"After three weeks of class, you get TEN DAYS OFF—to go wherever you want, to do whatever you want, with practically no homework! If you want to talk about Cloud Nine, that is what I call Heaven." —Sweta Vajjhala, B.S. CS '08
