Study Away in Barcelona: Experience of a Lifetime

In June, more than 90 students from the College of Information and Communications at the University of South Carolina will embark on a transformative journey to Barcelona, Spain. Faculty members, Scott Farrand and Kelly Davis will lead the students in exploring international communications and creating multimedia projects that showcase Barcelona’s food, architecture and culture. During their four-week stay in Spain, the class will also take a five-day trip to Aix-en-Provence, France, to deepen their understanding of global communications through hands-on experiences.

Guided by CIC staff member Dora Stryffeler, the students will document their adventures and share insights on the history and culture of these two Mediterranean cities. Follow their journey here!
