Barcelona Cultural Studies Program

Texas A&M students participate in a total immersion learning experience in Barcelona. The program places excursions and cultural outings at the core of instruction and offers students the possibility to learn on-site about the city from its Roman origins to its modern days. Classes are imparted in different historical locations (museums, medieval cities, architectural landmarks) as well as at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra. Following the four-week program, students can choose to extend their stay in Barcelona to participate in the six week International Summer School at the UPF.


Meadows Museum of Art Barcelona Program

Meadows Museum of Art students participated in a two-week program based in Barcelona that brought them face to face with the works they discussed in seminars at the museum. There were guided visits of Gaudí, Dalí, Picasso, and Miró, in addition to traveling to Montserrat, Montblac, Poblet, Santes Creus, and Sitges. The group dined daily at top restaurants and stayed in select hotels. A unique feature was the visit to the home and studio of the renowned Catalan sculptor, Xavier Corberó.
