Barcelona, an eclectic and vibrant Mediterranean city, is one of Europe’s benchmark cities for start-ups and has everything going on from top sport, to avant-garde art, music, cooking or design. Enjoy a Flamenco performance, tour Gaudí architectural masterpieces, delight in a gastronomic adventure at La Boqueria, relax on one of the many nearby beaches, and so much more!
The Study Center
CAPA’s Global Cities program locations offer a rich field of academic potential precisely because they are multi-layered, multi-dimensional, multicultural, complex and challenging. CAPA’s unique curriculum is designed to explore the way these Global Cities have been imagined, invented, and transformed by the forces of globalization throughout their history. The individual cities become the “text” that you are guided to analyze and explore. CAPA makes this analysis and exploration possible, and personal, through our My Global City activities and events.
Housing and Meals
Courses in the field of Sociology and Global and International Studies will be taught by Professor Evelyn Benavides.
Students live within commuting distance of the CAPA Barcelona site in shared, furnished apartments with other students on the program. Apartments have cooking facilities, bathrooms, and television. Apartments include a stipend towards the cost of utilities and wireless internet. The apartment accommodation is included in the price of the program.
Program includes may include (still being finalized):
