Travel.

Barcelona has it all: pristine white-sand beaches, a vibrant arts scene and an irresistible street culture of boutiques, coffee bars, tapas restaurants and discotecas. Live like a local in a cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean Sea, staying with a host family in a residential barrio and walking or riding the subway to your classes in this university community. Plus: daytrips beyond Barcelona.

Rethink.
