CAPA is aware of the incident in London this morning. We are checking in with all students but have no reason to believe any of our students are involved. Our hearts go out to all who have been affected.
In this week's vlog, Amaia Rioseco visits her roommate from back home at her program in Paris, France. The two students chat over breakfast and compare their semesters abroad, discussing some common differences they've noticed between their life at Emerson College in Boston and their programs in Paris and Barcelona.
The UN estimates that, by the end of this century, 84% of people will live in cities. Barcelona is a welcoming one, a community that embraces and encourages diversity, ambition and creativity. It’s a city that is thinking ahead, that is actively preparing itself for the future and for growth.
In this week's post, Maya recalls her excursion to Montserrat in Barcelona with the CAPA group, from a beautiful and strenuous hike into the clouds to seeing views of Barcelona and hearing the Montserrat boys choir sing.
This past weekend CAPA hosted another My Global Cities event. This time, it was a trip to the mountains of Montserrat! Before coming to Barcelona I had never heard of this place before, and had no idea what was in store for me upon arrival.
We began the day early, waking up before the sun and went to meet our tour guide in the city center. It was really cool seeing Barcelona during sunrise, when the world was still sleeping and no cars were on the road. This sounds so simple, but it truly is an interesting experience to see a place you are used to seeing in constant motion, completely still.
In this week's vlog, Amaia and the rest of the CAPA Barcelona students take a My Global City excursion up to the Montserrat Monastery to learn about history, catch some beautiful mountaintop views, and hear a performance by the Montserrat boys choir.
In this week's post, Maya goes through the details of her class schedule, field trips, workloads, and expected attendance, explaining what academics with CAPA Barcelona are actually look like.
A lot of times when people think about studying abroad, they are only picturing themselves traveling, going out, and experiencing new things in their chosen country. While this is a big part of studying abroad there, IS actual studying that you will be doing! The good thing about CAPA is that all the classes are held at the CAPA center in the middle of the city, so there is no getting lost finding your classes across a huge campus or any confusing language barriers.
