Program Description:

Program Overview CIEE Palma DeMallorca Summer

Palma de Mallorca is the capital of the Balearic Islands. Founded by the Romans in 123 BC, the city has inspired musicians, artists, and writers for centuries. Mallorca is an island marked with contrasts, from tiny traditional shops with Modernist facades to small villages with stone houses in the middle of the mountains, from long sandy beaches and dramatic coves to the urban and multicultural city of Palma. Mallorca enjoys a mild climate, a beautiful landscape, urban life, and traditional culture.

Founded in 1978, Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) is rooted in the culture of the Balearic Islands, with a strong commitment to serving society and respecting the environment. A public institution with 15,000 students, UIB has
a modern campus with libraries, a bookstore, computer labs, sports facilities, medical services, restaurants, and cafeterias. With the Serra de Tramuntana mountains as its backdrop, UIB is just a 12-minute metro ride from the city center. The Language and Culture summer program is located in a UIB building right in the city center, no more than a 15- to 20-minute walk from the homestays. 

Program Focus

If you are looking for a Spanish language immersion experience in a beautiful Mediterranean island city, and want to begin learning or further develop your Spanish while studying the socioeconomic and cultural impact of tourism in the Balearic Islands, the Mediterranean marine environment and ecology (beginning or intermediate Spanish), or the history and culture of the Mediterranean (advanced Spanish), then this program is perfect for you. Whether you are a student of business, tourism, humanities, sciences, or the social sciences, this program will help you develop unique perspectives on tourism or Mediterranean studies.
