ALBA Study Abroad offers an opportunity for an international experience in Barcelona, Spain, which has become one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Being one of the continent’s biggest cities, Barcelona is situated right on the Mediterranean Sea in the Northeast corner of Spain, about 100 miles south of the border with France. The courses ALBA offers there follow a "quarter" calendar with three eleven-week terms and a four-week summer session, which can be attended at any time, because they are not sequential. ALBA's elective courses - normally carrying three semester credits - are primarily in the areas of Humanities and Social Sciences and are usually taught in English. The exception is Spanish (or Catalan) language, which is a required course carrying four semester credits. Most students take Spanish and two electives for a total of ten semester credits per term.
