PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Can’t decide between pizza and paella? You don’t have to! Spend your January Term exploring three of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful cities and earn 3 credits! Explore the history, culture and languages of Italy and Spain, while you see what cultural elements tie this region together and yet make it so diverse.

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 and Italian outside of the classroom to truly get the most out of the experience.

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
So what are classes like at SIS? This three week program has been developed especially for international students and offers core classes in business and the humanities, as well as specialized options that focus on Barcelona, Rome, and Florence and all its intriguing features. Bringing learning to life is taken to a whole new level as you walk past the art of Gaudi after studying it in class that day.

Accreditation
Barcelona SIS is a Spanish institution with U.S. accreditation through Jacksonville University (JU). Upon completion of programs at Barcelona SIS, a JU transcript will be sent directly to the student’s home university.

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.


Credit Options
For the Multi-Country January Term program at SIS, students can choose from one of the following two courses:
 
  • Politics and Society in the Mediterranean: Rome, Florence and Barcelona (3 credits)
  • History and Culture of the Mediterranean: Italy and Spain (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 and Italy 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.
