The SCU Barcelona Program is customized specifically for Santa Clara students who wish to enjoy the quality services provided by the Institute of International Education of Students (IES) while paying Santa Clara subsidized fees. Participants will study at the IES Barcelona Study Center only. The program also features a Winter Quarter program for students who wish to extend their Fall to the Winter quarter before returning to campus for the Spring quarter term. Or for students whose schedule only allows for a Winter quarter abroad program.
Santa Clara students have the option of participating in an internship in Barcelona based on their academic plans, personal interest, career goals, and experience. Interested students must register for the Internship Seminar (IN 395) and the IES Barcelona Study Center staff will arrange for an appropriate internship in an array of fields including:
- Media & Communications
- Language Teaching
- Volunteer Organizations & NGOs
The choice of housing is an important component of the cultural immersion experience for Santa Clara students. Participants in the SCU Barcelona Program are required to live with carefully selected local residents. This provides unique opportunities for interaction with the local community.
Participants in the SCU Barcelona Program are invited to sign up for any of the unique fieldtrips arranged by the local staff. Students are encouraged to participate in these trips with other IES standard students provided space is available.
