University-based study in the three major universities in Barcelona: the Universitat de Barcelona (spring and year only), the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (primarily spring and year) and the Universitat Pompeu Fabra (primarily fall). Housing in student residence with Spanish and international students.
The Consortium is run by Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Northwestern, Princeton Stanford, and the University of Chicago.
Students can take university courses in Castillian Spanish or, if they wish to have broader course selection, some have opted to take courses in Catalan with examination in Castilian.
In order to find university courses, go to www.casbarcelona.org
Students take a Cultural Pro-Seminar at the Center prior
to the start of university classes and one course offered by the
Consortium during the semester. Students take all remaining classes (typically three)
from one or more of the partner universities. The Pro-Seminar includes
an introduction to Catalan for Spanish speakers, a review of Spanish
geared to be useful for university studies, and an overview of the
history of Barcelona/Catalunya in the context of Spanish history. Full-year students in their second semester and some single semester students following the Pro-Seminar have opted to take courses in Catalan.
The Barcelona Program Flyer contains general and Cornell-specific information.
A special certificate program is available for students who volunteer as teaching assistants in Catalan public schools. Click below for a 10-minute video:
