If you want to study in the very heart of one of Europe's most cosmopolitan and elegant cities, the Arcadia program in Barcelona may be just the place. Arcadia in Barcelona is an international study center located in the city center, just a short walk from the prestigious University of Barcelona.
Through a cooperative agreement with the University of Barcelona (founded in 1451) and the Arcadia in Barcelona center, students on the Arcadia program may opt to study at both sites for part or all of their academic load, for a semester or academic year. This enables students to choose from among several program options, depending on their particular areas of interest and level of proficiency in Spanish. Students at all levels of Spanish can be accommodated.
Students with no prior knowledge of Spanish will have the option of taking classes in English combined with Spanish language study. Intermediate-level students can take all coursework in Spanish, or combine courses in Spanish with some courses in English. Students at the most advanced levels can choose from Hispanic Studies courses in Spanish and/or directly enroll in courses at any of the faculties of the University of Barcelona (only academic year and spring students are eligibile to take courses at the University of Barcelona). All students (except those enrolled in the advanced program) are required to take 6 credits of Spanish language.
The Arcadia Advantage
Once you arrive, our resident director will lead an orientation program that will introduce you to the culture, history and politics of Spain and Catalonia, as well as preparing you for the academic challenges of studying in a different educational system. Arcadia in Barcelona is staffed by experienced student service professionals and faculty dedicated to supporting students throughout their study abroad experience and helping them find ways to take full advantage of their time abroad. The center is beautifully renovated and its facilities include classrooms, student lounges, a library, computer lab, and administrative offices. During the semester, you can expect to participate in excursions that are designed to allow you to reflect on learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
