This is Mt. San Jacinto College’s 20th year in helping students study in Barcelona, Spain. Mt. San Jacinto has been with the Southern California Foothills Consortium since 1989, and we sent our first group of study abroad students to London in fall 1990. Mt. San Jacinto sent two students that semester. London is offered in the fall and Barcelona in the spring. They have both been very popular programs.
Barcelona, Spain Program dates are February 16-May 12, 2017. Barcelona is home to one of the oldest universities in the world, and the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2002. We often have students from outside community colleges and universities participate in our programs. We have even had students from out-of-state!
Students who participate in Spring 2017 will take advantage of the unique opportunities of studying and living in Spain. Previous Spanish language experience is not required. Students enroll in 12-14 units and select their classes from curriculum designed to enhance their study abroad experience. Most course work is CSU/UC transferable and fulfills general education requirements. Eligibility to participate in the program requires a cumulative GPA of 2.5 in 12 units of previous college level course work at an accredited college. We send our own faculty to Spain, and we have outstanding student services staff on site to assist you throughout the semester. Classes are scheduled M-TH, so there are lots of opportunities to travel.
