Spain is a summer study-abroad destination

There are still a few openings in Glendale Community College’s summer study-abroad program to Spain.


The college has offered programs previously in Paris, Prague, New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Italy, Greece, Bali and Ireland.

The Spain program will be shorter than the college’s regular study-abroad offerings. It will be a 10-day program, which requires enrollment in just one course, “Art History Field Studies.”

The one-unit course focuses on observing and appreciating the interconnections of European art, history and architecture.

The program includes some key artistic and cultural highlights of Madrid, Toledo and Segovia. A typical day allows time for a field excursion, short lecture/discussions and time to relax or explore independently.

Emily Haraldson, an art history professor at Glendale Community College, will lead the trip.

The dates will be June 19 to 28, 2020, and the cost is $ 1,250 plus airfare and college course fees. Included in the cost will be a daily breakfast, welcome dinner and farewell dinner, group airport transfers and a seven-day Madrid public-transit pass.

It will also cover guided tours of Madrid museums including Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen Bornemisza, as well as guided day tours to Segovia and Toledo.
