Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Contact hours: 180-225 per semester

Semester credits: 12-15 per semester

Advanced and superior-level Spanish speakers who choose to study abroad in Barcelona with API in the Integrated Studies Program have the option to take advanced language courses, as well as a wide variety of course offerings in other disciplines. The language course is equivalent to 6 credits, whereas elective courses are typically equivalent to 3 credits. Many courses with other international students are available, but all students must select at least one course with Spaniards. Students are welcome to complete up to 15 credits per semester and can add additional courses for an extra fee.

Students must have completed at least one upper-division course of college-level Spanish or have the equivalent linguistic competency for admission. Students complete a placement exam upon arrival and are placed into a Spanish course based on the results of that exam.
