You'll enroll in 1 CEA CAPA core course, 1-3 CEA CAPA courses and 1-2 courses from either Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) or Pompeu Fabra University (UPF).
CEA CAPA and UAB courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. UPF elective courses meet for 32-45 contact hours/2-3 credits. Overall, you may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours) over the semester and 24-30 credits (up to 450 contact hours) over the academic year.
Core and elective courses meet twice per week, Monday-Thursday. Courses at UPF typically meet 2-3 times per week while courses at UAB typically meet twice per week. 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. If you choose to take electives at UPF in Spanish, you’ll take a language placement exam at UPF during orientation week. 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.
Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
