Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona is famous for its colorful architecture, amazing food, and welcoming people. With its unique characteristics, it is no surprise that Barcelona is consistently ranked as as one of the world’s top 10 tourist destinations. Millions flock to the sandy coasts each year to indulge in the Spanish culture of living life to the fullest.
Furthermore, the aesthetic design of Barcelona is unlike any other city in the world with a blend of mosaics and original creations by famous local visionary architect Antoni Gaudi. Couple that with some of Europe’s most famous beaches, delicious local cuisine, the largest football (soccer) stadium in all of Europe, and a flare for celebrations, and you’ll have your hands full trying to see and do everything you set out to see and do during your internship in this vibrant and exciting city. Imagine living in paradise for 8 weeks while improving your Spanish skills and gaining professional experience in your career field.
The Global Education Office has partnered with Global Experiences to provide Mason students an internship experience in Barcelona, Spain. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a Barcelona internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in government and policy, global affairs, business and economics, communications, marketing, accounting, and tourism.
Barcelona is a medium sized European city with most residents living in apartments. To ensure students are able to experience living in the "real Barcelona", student housing is located in what is considered to be main, central areas of Barcelona, in close proximity to public transport lines. The apartments have kitchens and necessary amenities to move right in and live like a local.
All participants will complete a roommate questionnaire for the Barcelona on-site support team to asses the right accommodations match. If there are any special needs for housing, please discuss with your GEO program officer at the time of application completion to ensure requests can be accommodated.
