About the Program

Program Description

This versatile program is designed for students who want to focus on business, design, and innovation through a practical approach. Visit local companies, meet Spanish entrepreneurs, and choose marketing and entrepreneurship courses at our partner, the University of Vic – Central University of Catalonia (UVic-UCC), and round out your experience by choosing from a wide range of elective and core courses at the CEA Barcelona Center. Courses are taught in English, but Spanish language courses are available for every level of ability. You may also enroll in the optional Global Career Development Seminar, an ideal way to focus on future career success.

Program Structure

Enroll in 1-2 UVic-UCC elective courses, 1 CEA core course, and 1-3 CEA elective courses. Courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits per semester. You may also choose to enroll in the Global Career Development Seminar course, which meets for 15 contact hours/1 credit. Overall, semester students may earn a total of 12-16 credits (up to 240 contact hours) and academic year students may earn a total of 24-32 credits (up to 480 contact hours).

Typically, courses meet twice per week, Monday-Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take an online language placement exam. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. If you choose to take a Spanish language or elective course, to ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.

Where You'll Study

The University of Vic - Central University of Catalonia, an independent, state-supported institution, is known for its commitment to the region’s economic and social development, as well as a focus on multi-lingual training. The campus is just a short metro ride from the CEA Barcelona Center.
Located on the Plaza Catalunya in the heart of the city, the CEA Barcelona Center offers courses in a range of subjects, taught in English and Spanish. Learning takes place both in and out of the classroom, with instructors taking full advantage of Barcelona’s many notable sites and attractions. 

Where You'll Stay

When you study abroad in Barcelona, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.
