We are pleased to announce the launching of a new Hispanic and Mediterranean Studies Program starting September 13th, 2010 at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC) in Barcelona, Spain.
The program is aimed at international students with an intermediate level of Spanish who are interested in learning more about Spanish culture, history, literature and language in the context of political, social, historical and cultural events that, in the past, had shaped and gave the Mediterranean region of today its own identity within the European Union.
The Program is also aimed at home students who wish to gain deeper understanding of two realities shaping their country: Spanish culture and Mediterranean identity, both relevant not only for their past but also because of their preeminent future role in the international area.
Spain, in general, and Barcelona, in particular, is an excellent setting in which to approach the study of and research into Mediterranean identity and Spanish culture. The cosmopolitan character and mild Mediterranean climate, excellent communication networks and wide range of recreational activities, place Barcelona among the world’s most recognized cultural capitals. The city currently attracts over seven million tourists per year. Throughout its two thousand years history, Barcelona has made significant contributions in architecture, art and literature. Traditionally open to foreign influences while maintaining its Mediterranean character, Barcelona has adopted a modern, dynamic approach to its commercial, industrial, creative and educational activities. The city also boasts one of the largest university communities in Europe, made up of nearly 250,000 students and 14,500 professors and researchers.
