To make the most of your three weeks in Barcelona, IFSA takes your learning outside the classroom with multiple co-curricular activities each week – designed to introduce you to the role that social media marketing plays in Barcelona’s international profile and how these same strategies can be applied in both personal and professional contexts. These experiences may include:
- A visit to Sagrada Família and Park Güell.

- A meeting with Barcelona start-ups and non-profits to discuss social media strategies and campaigns.
- A local cooking class and social media marketing recipe competition.

After you return to the U.S., IFSA will send an official Butler University transcript to your home university with your coursework converted to the U.S. credit system. You will also have access to an unofficial transcript in your IFSA Student Portal. The transcript reflects courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost.
