The study of Romani (Roma) people dates back to 1888, yet study of this ethnic minority group are still underrepresented within academia and international education programs. The following Course Link Capstone proposes a new study abroad program offering based in Barcelona, Spain to the director of Barcelona Study Abroad Experience (SAE). The program, titled “Romani Studies: Exploring Gypsy Culture and Society”, will have a curricular focus on the Roma in Spain. The curriculum will focus on the history of Roma, the adversities they face as a European minority, as well as examine their rich cultural heritage.
