BarçaPA is designed for students interested in Spanish language and cultural immersion, coupled with a soccer component. Students will explore the city of Barcelona and the nearby town of Sitges while practicing their Spanish and familiarizing themselves with the Catalan culture.

In Barcelona, students will engage in a week-long culture course that will prepare them to explore the city’s historical sites, such as La Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, and Camp Nou.

In Sitges, students will participate in La Masia style soccer training program, visit the town’s renowned art museums, and become acquainted with its cultural life.

Our hope is for students to develop an understanding of the culture of Catalonia and understand the unique connection that the people of Catalonia have with their soccer club, Barcelona FC—colloquially known as El Barça.Spanish.


Develop an understanding of the culture of Catalonia and the connection with soccer club, Barcelona FC.
