Barcelona is our exciting 12-week study abroad spring destination! Experience Barcelona’s eclectic architecture, beautiful coastline, and artistic sophistication while enrolled in CSU/UC transferable community college courses. Barcelona is home to Antoni Gaudi’s fantastic Sagrada Familia church and Parc Guell as well as major museums featuring modernists Miro and Picasso and Catalan art. Although the city's origins can be traced back to the first century BC, Barcelona is also a very modern city and transportation hub with easy access to all of Europe’s popular destinations via its international airport and high-speed rail system.
