CIEE Barcelona Economics & Culture
The Universitat Pompeu Fabra was created in 1990. It offers degrees in law, economics, business, social sciences, communications, humanities, and technology. Features include its highly dedicated teaching staff, small class size, focus on technology, and an international outlook. The University is located throughout Barcelona, with buildings near the Ramblas, the Olympic Village, and the port.
The Economics and Culture program is designed for students with a strong background in economics and interest in continuing their study through rigorous economics classes at a top-notch university, especially known for its economics faculty, while also taking classes in Spanish language and culture.
Students with beginner- to intermediate-level Spanish (up to three semesters) take classes in English. Students with intermediate to advanced Spanish (four and five semesters) take a combination of classes in English and Spanish. Advanced students (those with six or more semesters of Spanish) take all of their coursework in Spanish.
Students select courses from CIEE electives; a range of regular, direct enrolment UPF courses with Spanish students taught in English or Spanish; Hispanic and European Studies (HESP) culture courses taught in English or Spanish; and a CIEE Internship.
