Offered during the spring semester of each year, the IWU Spain Program allows 16-24 IWU students to study with an IWU professor and local faculty while living with host families in Barcelona.  Students take one course with the program director, an IWU faculty member, and select their other three classes from those offered by Spanish faculty at the Barcelona SAE, our program partner.

Spanish proficiency is not required, and students will be able to utilize Barcelona resources in their coursework. Spain Program classes are a mix General Education courses, Spanish language and 300-level Hispanic Studies courses, and sophomore-level nursing courses.  General Education classes may also satisfy requirements toward a major or minor with the permission of the appropriate department chair. Courses are designed to take advantage of Barcelona's cultural resources, and the program features educational excursions outside Barcelona, which vary each year but may include Madrid, Granada, or Zaragoza.

Possible General Education course offerings include the following:

Spanish Major/Minor course offerings include:
