Study Abroad PVCC: Art History and Communication in Bilbao, Spain

Basque Highlights: Culture and International Communication in Northern Spain

Bilbao, Spain

Dates:  June 5th - 16th, 2017

This study abroad program will take place in Bilbao, Spain, in the heart of Basque-land. Through special projects courses in art and communications, participants will spend their mornings immersed in the rich artistic culture of the Basque region of northern Spain, and their afternoons sharpening their communication skills for speaking to international audiences.

The art course will aim to help students develop an awareness of this ancient, matriarchal, tribal society that has maintained its unique cultural identity into the modern age. The communications course is designed for native (or near-native) English speakers who have had significant public speaking experience. It will focus on the theory and practice of public communication with an international audience, with the goal of developing an awareness of the challenges faced by a non-native English speaking audience, along with theory and practice to master these challenges. These skills will become increasingly important in an expanding global economy.
