Study in Barcelona- capital of the autonomous province of Catalonia, and one of the most prosperous areas in contemporary Spain. A major cultural center since the Middle Ages, it styles itself Catalan, Spanish, European, and international. There’s a saying in Barcelona: “One Catalan starts a business. Two Catalans organize a corporation. Three Catalans form a choral society.”
Barcelona has been home to prominent 20th century artists like Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró. The experimental works of themodernista architect Antoni Gaudí are one of the city’s unique attractions, and his Church of the Holy Family is the familiar symbol of the city.
IES Abroad Barcelona welcomes students of all Spanish language levels. Students will recieve 6-7 credits during the program and can choose to improve their Spanish language learning through intensive Spanish language courses or they may enroll in area studies courses taught in English or Spanish. See the table below for a list of Spain-Barcelona, IES Course Equivalents.
