Community college students have an opportunity to study overseas in Barcelona, Spain, this fall semester. The deadline for applications               is April 1.

Diane Richy-Ward, professor of art at American River College, said that the program, sponsored by the Northern California Study Abroad Consortium along with the California Community Colleges, is open to all Los Rios students and offers 12 units of UC/CSU transferable courses.

The cost of the trip is $7,365 and that excludes student enrollment fees and airfare.

Financial aid, scholarships, medical services, an optional travel package and other services are available for students that wish to look into them or require extra help.

“It’s an amazing opportunity for students [to study] and live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world for three months,” Richy-Ward said.

Students participating in the program will leave the U.S. on Sept. 8 and arrive in Barcelona on Sept. 9. A midterm break occurs Oct. 22 through Oct. 26. Students will leave Barcelona Dec. 7 and return to the U.S. on Dec. 8.

According to Richy-Ward, “Drawing and art history courses will be taught in museums along with offerings in Spanish, history and psychology.”
