PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Spend your January Term earning 3 credits at Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS). With small class sizes, individualized attention and professors who use Barcelona as their classroom, this program incorporates interactive learning and experiential learning to maximize learning in a short period of time.

You’ll enjoy a perfect blend of top-notch academics and experiential learning that include intriguing courses, guest speakers, local tours and a variety of cultural activities and excursions. Courses are taught in English, but students are highly encouraged to practice their Spanish outside of the classroom to truly get the most out of the Barcelona experience.

Located in the heart of the city, the Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS) is our most centrally located campus option. SIS boasts fantastic local and international professors, many of whom are working professionals in the field they teach. SIS maintains small class sizes and focuses on experiential learning, which means that students will get individualized attention and will participate actively during class. Each course includes a variety of field studies, museum visits, and guided reflection that closely tie the courses to the city itself.

SIS is a Spanish institution, but receives U.S. accreditation through Jacksonville University in Florida. This means that while the educational system is a blend of American and Spanish styles, students will be graded following the U.S. system and will receive a transcript that is easily transferable to U.S. institutions.

REQUIREMENTS
  • Minimum G.P.A. Requirement: 2.5
  • Class Requirement: Freshman-Senior Standing
  • Language Requirement: Although helpful, no previous Spanish language knowledge is required.

ACADEMICS
The Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS) and Barcelona SAE have worked hard to create a study abroad program that allows you to earn credits in your major, minor, or electives. The courses are especially designed for international students, meaning that you will be able to take courses in English and/or have the advantage of learning in Spanish at a pace for non-native or fluent speakers.

Accreditation
The Barcelona School for International Studies (SIS) is accredited by Jacksonville University (JU) in Jacksonville, Florida. After completing a Barcelona SAE program at SIS, the JU transcript will be sent directly to the student’s home institution.

Course Approval
Before you go abroad, Barcelona SAE strongly recommends that you meet with the study abroad office and/or your academic advisor at your home institution. After your acceptance into the program, you will be required to submit a “Approval Contact for Study Abroad” form that will automatically inform your home institution of your intent to participate on a Barcelona SAE program. With that said, we suggest that students are as transparent as possible about their plans and make an appointment with their study abroad office immediately after submitting their Barcelona SAE application.

The earlier that students plan for their study abroad experience, the easier it will be to get all of their courses pre-approved and know exactly what transfer credit will be received at their home institution. Please remember that it is best to get multiple first and second choice courses pre-approved for your Barcelona SAE program, as this will give you some flexibility in setting up your class schedule. Don’t just think about the courses that are required for your major or minor, but also courses that can fulfill your general education or elective requirements.


Course Options
For the History, Culture & Management Across Borders in Barcelona January Term program, students can choose one of the following two courses:
  • Contemporary Spanish Society (3 Credits)
  • Management Across Borders (3 Credits)
Important Notes:
  • Please note that not all courses listed above will be offered every January Term, and the list above are courses and/or subject areas that have been offered in the past by the host institution. Institutions in Barcelona often do not finalize course listings until the beginning of the term, and as such, this list will be updated as the host institution provides additional information.  
  • For a complete listing of courses that will occur during your specific January Term at SIS, please contact your Barcelona SAE Advisor.
  • In order to receive credit from SIS’s school of record, Jacksonville University, students must receive a grade of C or higher.
