Antoinette Hertel, Ph.D., Program Director

Barcelona, Spain

As Program Director, Antoinette provides leadership to the Student Support team at CEA Barcelona. She oversees program operations, manages staffing, financial logistics, student services, student accommodation, and health & safety.

Prior to joining CEA, Antoinette spent over 15 years working in higher education as a professor and chairperson of the Department of Modern Languages at St. Joseph´s College, New York, where she also spent 2 years as Director of the Office of Global Studies. During her years on the faculty, she led short-term study abroad programs in Buenos Aires, Nicaragua and Cuba embedded in courses on Latin American literature & culture and service-learning.

Antoinette earned a Ph.D. in Hispanic and Lusophone Languages & Literatures from New York University, where she taught Spanish on the New York City campus and in the NYU Buenos Aires summer program. As a Spanish and French major at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she spent her junior year abroad at the Universidad Complutense in Madrid and her final undergraduate semester in Paris.

Antoinette has always had a love for languages and the worlds they open to us. In addition to her native English, she is fluent in Spanish and a lifelong learner of Portuguese, French and, more recently, Catalan.

Dr. Hertel believes in global learning´s potential to be transformative. The process of critical reflection that CEA cultivates in students in their programs abroad is key to developing a global self-awareness and an understanding of multiple perspectives that can equip them to successfully face global challenges that arise in our culturally diverse society.
