Study Abroad programs at COCC with the Oregon International Education Consortium
Fall Quarter in Barcelona
in the Mediterranean capitol of Catalonia. Explore a city as old as its
Roman roots and medieval center, but as new as its Gaudi park, nouveau
art architecture and 1992 Olympic make-over. This ten-week program
offers activities and courses in Spanish culture, language, and other disciplines soon to be announced. The next program which is provided by COCC will be Fall 2015. (Students at other Oregon Community Colleges will need to register with COCC for the Fall 2015 term and then transcript their completed classes with their home institution after returning from Barcelona.)
Applications available Nov. 1st, 2014, and full schedule of classes to be announced in December 2014.
Students interested in learning more about the program can meet the Director of the Barcelona Study Abroad Experience in Campus Center Bldg. 116 on Wednesday, Oct 29, 2014 from noon to 1 pm.
