Location & Culture

Click to Open

Palma de Mallorca is the top tourist destination in Europe, and headquarters 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.

The program details

This program is designed for business, tourism, hospitality, or international studies students. Participants examine the various aspects of business, tourism, or international studies in a direct enrollment environment with local Spanish students both in English and in Spanish, and in courses taught by CIEE faculty. Students from all other majors are also welcome, as they can enroll in regular university courses in Spanish and in English from all the different studies offered at Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) - anthropology, biology, education, engineering, health, international law, philosophy, psychology and Spanish literature and linguistics. CIEE Palma also offers an internship in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL).

In Palma we promote learning by doing with field-study activities outside the classroom, exploring Spanish culture, and visiting different companies and institutions dedicated to international business, tourism, and recreation. CIEE language courses are taught by UIB teachers who specialize in Spanish as a second language. All other courses are taught by UIB faculty and business professionals.

Students enroll in university courses at UIB, a modern university hosting 13,000 students. Palma’s economy depends on tourism, so the university emphasizes tourism studies, business, economics, human resources, and environmental sustainability. The Journal of Hospitality & Tourism Research ranks the UIB Tourism program first in Spain, second in Europe, and seventeenth in the world. 

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    CIEE courses are open only to CIEE students. Most students in university classes are from Spain. Class sizes are small, with 20 to 50 students in UIB business classes.

  • GRADING

    CIEE courses: Grades are based on class participation, homework assignments, vocabulary quizzes, reports on field visits, exams, papers, oral presentations, and attendance. Internship: Grades are based on work performance, a professional diary, regular meetings with the internship academic advisor, a final paper, and an oral presentation. UIB courses: Students may have term papers, group projects, or class presentations. At least half the final grade is based on a final exam. Numeric grades are given based on a 10-point scale, and converted to the U.S. grading scale.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Class attendance is mandatory and absences affect grades. CIEE instructors provide detailed syllabi, and students should expect daily homework assignments. University professors normally combine lectures, tutorials, seminars, and, in the sciences, laboratory classes, and expect independent work from students. At the university, it is common to get a syllabus with an outline of themes, a list of recommended readings, and grading criteria, but no detailed calendar. Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB) courses run through mid-January with final exams in early February. CIEE requests permission for early exams for students who need to depart before Christmas. Academic year students must be back in Palma in early January to continue classes and take exams. In spring, CIEE and UIB courses finish by the end of May. UIB final exams run through mid-June. In most cases, professors may administer final exams before Christmas in the fall and late-May or early-June in the spring, but CIEE cannot guarantee this for all classes. Students will know which classes allow earlier final exams before departure for Palma.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.
