AT A GLANCE/LOCATION
This sunny Mediterranean island is a mecca for tourists. Add Spain’s number one tourism degree program, and you’ve got the perfect location to explore hospitality, recreation management, and business. Join Spanish students in specially designed Spanish or English-taught classes, and visit Palma hospitality and tourism businesses to develop critical management skills, industry vocabulary, and a global business perspective. You can experience a professional work atmosphere while pursuing a for-credit internship in a company or hotel in Palma.
In addition to Spanish, you can also study Spanish literature, education, psychology, and international law. Or intern at a Palma school teaching English as a Second Language.
Palma de Mallorca is the top tourist destination in Europe, and headquarter for some of Europe’s major tourism enterprises, such as Air Europa, Barceló, Iberostar, TUI, Hotel Beds, Sol Meliá, and Viajes Iberia. The port city is dominated by a gothic Cathedral, an elegant Moorish palace, and a medieval castle. The palm-fringed marina bristles with masts, and beyond lies a tapestry of gothic, medieval, modernist, and Moorish architecture, tiny shops, and busy squares. Flat terrain makes for easy walking and biking. Beyond the city are small villages, stones houses, and the impressive Tramuntana Mountains. No matter where you are, you’ll be tempted to act like a local and adopt an active lifestyle so you can make the most of the landscapes and azure waters around you.
