The Blanquerna School of Communication and International Relations is a center for higher education of Blanquerna, which forms part of Ramon Llull University.
We are located in the center of Barcelona, one of the most modern, vital and exciting cities of Europe, in part due to its thriving social, cultural and artistic. The School is a mirror of this modern, intercultural and multi-ethnic Barcelona, open and tolerant, European and Mediterranean.
We are a dynamic and enterprising young School (having opened our doors in the 1994-1995 academic year), which, in these past years, has educated and trained more than 5000 professionals.
We are a point of reference in Catalonia and in Spain, as we are beginning to be throughout Europe, and intend to be soon in America and Asia. For this reason, beginning in the 2012-2013 academic year, we are offering a new degree in International Relations.
We educate good professionals and good people, professionals with values and commitment. This is why we offer a humanistic education based on the motto of our university: “To be and to know”.
We have a central building where classes are taught, with classrooms equipped with the latest in technology (television studios, digital editing rooms, design and publication workshops, sound studios, multi-media classrooms) and another building which houses the library and media library, the auditorium and a next-generation television studio.
We are a School of prestige because most of our lecturers combine their teaching with their own professional activity. At Blanquerna, theory and practice go hand in hand because of our desire to educate and train the excellent professionals that society requires.
We are different because our methodology helps to develop the best in each student, in each person. We work above all in seminars, an educational space with 10 to 12 students and a professor-tutor who promotes creative ability and a humanist spirit in the framework of a personalized education designed to help the student achieve academic, personal and professional success.
We are international because we promote the mobility of professors and students by means of agreements with institutions and universities all over the world. It is for this reason that our students receive intense instruction in the use of English. And we are international because we promote our professors’ research and the publication of academic and scientific papers (Trípodos, Papers d’Estudi) in addition to organizing conventions and conferences to analyze the changes in the world of communication.
We are always on the side of our students, both while they are studying for their degrees and when they have graduated. We have a Job Placement Service, and we have agreements for internships with more than 300 companies in the field of communication. Our students do mandatory internships in their third year and can do an elective internship in their fourth year. When they graduate, they remain in touch with us through our alumni program, Alumni.
We are a School which is extremely up-to-date on changes in the field of education, with a wide range of master’s, doctoral, post-graduate courses and master’s degrees specific to Ramon Llull University.
In the name of the management team and myself, the School and staff of Blanquerna, we welcome you and invite you to visit us virtually by means of our website and social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) or in person by attending one of the informative conferences that we organize.
We hope to see you soon at the School as a new student of Blanquerna.
