The University of Maryland's nine "Maryland-in" programs provide a great way to spend a semester abroad with more support than an exchange semester, semester abroad through a provider, or by direct enrolling. Often there is resident credit available (classes will appear on your transcript as if you took them here). Business students in particular should review the London, Rome, and Barcelona programs for how they might fit in with your academic plan, as these programs have a substantial number of business courses available in English.
Make a city unlike any other your own through the Maryland-in-Barcelona study abroad program. Spain’s second largest city and the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is truly Mediterranean in culture, temperament, and history. Founded in the second century BC, it is now a thriving, culturally rich metropolis known for its modernist architecture, gorgeous beaches, mountains overlooking the sea, and a largely preserved Gothic city center. Barcelona is a city that has earned its reputation and lives up to the hype – an ideal place to live, study, and experience European life. [ LEARN MORE ]
