As a BCA Barcelona student, you will enroll in courses at the University of Barcelona taught in Spanish. This option, unless you take UB
courses offered in English, is best for students with advanced Spanish
language skills. In addition to UB courses, you will
enroll in BCA's Signature Course, Topics in Spanish Grammar and Culture. To learn more about course offerings, visit our Course Database and review a list of University Recommended Courses chosen by the BCA Resident Director.
English Language Options
your major is related to the fields of business, economics,
international relations, sociology or political sciences you can enroll
in University of Barcelona courses taught in English. University
courses taught in English are marked with an asterisk next to the title
of the course (search courses here).
What if my Spanish isn't Good Enough for UB courses?
If your Spanish language skills are not advanced, you may choose BCA courses which are taught in Spanish by
University of Barcelona associate and full professors. Assessment in
these classes, taught to BCA students only, is based on a midterm, a
final exam and a written paper. See a list of recommended BCA Courses here.
A combination of BCA Courses and University Courses
may also opt for a combination of the two above: you may take some
University and some BCA courses. This option is an asset to the program
and many BCA Barcelona students take advantage of it.
