Experience Spain's geographical, architectural, and cultural beauty with guided educational excursions. Unlike some study abroad experiences, the Knox Program in Barcelona includes these excursions in your program tuition giving you the best opportunity to connect classroom knowledge with up-close, personal experience.
See the artistry and ingenuity of Roman ruins, medieval pueblos, and gothic monasteries, the intriguing Figueras, and the breathtaking beauty of Costa Brava. Much more than a tourist experience, each excursion is guided by Universitat de Barcelona professors who offer you a deeper interaction with these treasures of Spain.

One of the most unique aspects of the Knox Program in Barcelona is a two-week trip through the south of Spain. Included in the price of the program for two- and three-term participants, this educational adventure makes stops in Valencia, Granada, Ronda, Sevilla, Córdoba, Toledo, Madrid and Salamanca introducing you to the unique culture, environment, and peoples of each location.
This trip is also open to parents of program participants. Students studying during the Fall term only may also pay to join the trip. Cost is approximately $1,000 per person and includes four-star hotels; dinner and breakfast; entrance to museums, cathedrals, and other attractions; and tour guides.
