What to Expect
My Global Education
CAPA’s unique My Global Education Program was developed to offer you, the student, a unique opportunity to make decisions about how you will learn about culture according to how you enjoy learning. Compiled by local CAPA education abroad advisers, the calendar offers a menu of different activities, events, volunteer opportunities, lectures, visits, and self-directed tours to help teach you the most about Barcelona.
With My Global Education in Barcelona, you and your new CAPA friends will be able to:
Learn about the Mediterranean cuisine through Tapas tasting.
Explore what locals do by the sea (from sport, to dancing, to eating).
Visit a Design Trade Show.
Visit small local businesses and learn how these family businesses are run (from chocolate factories to wineries).
Explore the Born District, the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona’s famous food markets.
Walking tour of Gaudi architecture.
– And many more!
You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of activities with varying styles of presentation. This allows you to pick a session that speaks to you and your way of learning.
What will I be able to do with My Global Education?
CAPA presents a My Global Education Calendar to all students and faculty. The events, reflective sessions, and activities listed are designed around significant academic themes such as Diversity, Social Dynamics, Globalization and Urban Environments. Participation in these activities will give you an intelligent, well rounded, and in depth view of Barcelona and Spain.
Some CAPA professors integrate My Global Education activities into their courses and assessment, so that you may have an opportunity to reflect upon, write about and present your experiences.
