If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing.

Excursions

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered three excursions and summer study students are typically offered two excursions. You’ll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we’ve offered in the past.

*In an effort to offer lower-cost internship options and support you in maximizing your professional development in a condensed timeframe, summer internship programs do not include excursions.

Madrid

Experience another side of contemporary Spain in its political and commercial capital, Madrid. This centrally located city bridges the mountainous regions to the north, the Mediterranean coast, and the southern reaches of Andalusia. Here, you’ll explore a range of cultural, social, and economic sites at the intersection of tradition and innovation.

Córdoba

Explore the colorful fusion of cultures and long, rich history of Córdoba. Once one of Europe’s most important capitals, the city has long been a melting pot of cultural influences where Muslims, Christians, and Jews co-existed peacefully. This small Andalusian city is full of iconic monuments, like the Mezquita, the Great Mosque of Córdoba, and the old Jewish quarter, home to the 1315 synagogue (one of only three left in Spain.) Córdoba has produced many influential philosophers, scientists, and artists, as well as a lively tradition of flamenco dancing.

Granada

Explore Spain’s most visited monument, the Alhambra, a 14th century Arab palace with magnificent architecture and lush gardens. Note the Moorish influence that pervades the narrow cobblestone streets of the Albaicin. Enjoy a cup of tea—and amazing city views—at a traditional tea house. Seven centuries of Moorish influence makes Granada the most Arabesque place in the western world.

Ronda

Authors Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles spent summers in Ronda, writing about its beauty and traditions. Famous for the deep El Tajo gorge that carries the rio Guadalevín through its center, you won’t want to miss the breathtaking views from the 18th century Puente Nuevo bridge. Ronda is also famous as the birthplace of modern bullfighting and boasts one of Spain’s oldest bullrings.

Carmona

Just a short distance from Seville, Carmona overlooks the Andalusian central plains and is known for its olive oil and cattle. Pass by Carmona’s Moorish walls, fountains, and city gates on your way to the city’s famous tapas crawl, “Ruta de las Tapas.” You’ll also enjoy a holistic Oleovisit experience, where all five senses come alive at a “liquid gold” tasting on an olive farm.

Northern Morocco

The northwestern tip of Africa is just 10 miles from Andalusia. Make this short continental crossing to discover the intercultural complexities, unique beauty, and mystery of northern Morocco. You’ll love exploring the whitewashed streets and buzzing activity of life in the medinas, the traditional city centers that are today’s commercial hubs.

Aracena

Aracena, the largest town in Sierra de Aracena and Picos de Aroche Natural Park, sits at the foot of a 12th-century castle. Visit the spectacular Gruta de las Maravillas, or limestone caverns, and learn about sustainable agriculture at a traditional farm. Here you’ll see age-old practices in action and learn about the production of local pork products, a.k.a. an ideal opportunity to sample the region’s world-renown jamon (ham).

Lisbon

Experience centuries of fascinating history as you navigate the cobblestone streets perched atop the seven hills of Lisbon, Portugal. History and tradition come to life as you tour sites like St. George’s Castle and Belem Tower and take in a live Fado musical performance. Contrast this historic charm with the city’s fashionable, cosmopolitan vibe, evident in foodie-worthy restaurants and designer night clubs that attract university students and beautiful people from all over the continent. 21st century architecture and feats of engineering define the 1998 World Exposition sites. You'll love discovering Lisbon's breathtaking sights and enjoying the nearby beach resorts around its coast.

Jerez & Sanlucar

On this day trip, you'll discover both a rural Andalusian landscape and a picturesque coastal town. First, you'll learn about the centuries-old breeding and schooling of Arabian and Spanish horses in a modern-day sustainable farm that also produces the world famous local sherry wine, fino. After a wine tasting and a demonstration of the horses’ ability, we visit Sanlucar, a traditional sea-side town where the Guadalquivir river meets the Atlantic Ocean. Take a pleasant stroll by the water, swim, and sample fresh fish and seafood, among other local gastronomical delights.

Tarifa & Baelo Claudia

This day trip allows you to experience three distinct and influential cultures as you explore the European continent's gateway to Africa. Highlights of the day include a guided visit to the wonderfully preserved Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia, an opportunity to shop (or window shop) in a medina-style-meets-design-boutique neighborhood, and relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches on the Spain's Atlantic coast.

Cultural Engagement

Sevilla tiene un color especial…take advantage of Seville’s unique flavor! CEA offers immersion and experiential activities to match your interests. Whether you enjoy concerts, clubs, sports, cooking classes, language exchanges, dancing, urban art, or something entirely different, CEA Seville’s on-site staff helps you connect to local culture.

Vision of Flamenco: Flamenco Workshop and Show

Flamenco, a UNESCO-declared “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity,” is an emblematic symbol of Spanish culture and art. Seville’s Triana neighborhood, a.k.a. the birthplace of flamenco, is home to dozens of small bars that host live performances. In an interactive workshop, you’ll learn flamenco’s legacy and receive basic musical and dance instruction. You’ll also attend a professional flamenco show; be prepared to feel powerful emotions, from profound sorrow to great joy.

Say It Like It Is: Language Exchange with Locals

Commonly known as intercambios, CEA structures these fun language exchange events to connect you with your Spanish peers. Conversations about the event of the day (soccer night, movie night, etc.) make it easy to practice your Spanish language skills while getting to know local students and sharing each other’s cultural influences.

Death in the Afternoon: Bullfight Workshop and Bullring Experience

Bullfights are a national—and controversial—spectacle in Spain. The corrida takes place in a large outdoor arena known as the plaza de toros. In order to contextualize the experience and place it within its historical and cultural tradition, CEA offers a workshop where you’ll explore bullfighting’s symbolic elements and structure, as well as proper spectator etiquette. You may choose to attend Seville's Maestranza bullring, known as one of the corrida’s finest and most demanding venues.

Slice It and Dice It: Spanish Regional Cuisine Workshop

After sampling local cuisine, it’s only normal to want to be able to eat these foods for a lifetime! In this workshop, you’ll gain an overview of Spanish cuisine from a socio-historical perspective. Then you’ll have a hands-on opportunity to prepare local dishes, expanding both your knowledge and appreciation of local culinary habits.

Cathedral of Seville Visit

Construction on the Cathedral of Seville began in 1402 and continued into the 16th century. Take a guided tour of Spain’s largest cathedral and Seville’s most-visited monument, including a climb up the Giralda tower to experience breathtaking views of Seville. You’ll also see the (contested) burial site of Christopher Columbus.

Workshops

  • Seville Under the Photographic Lens Workshop
  • Arab and Jewish Heritage Walking Tours
  • Contemporary Art Museum Guided Visit

Other Opportunities

Career and Re-entry Workshop

Explore the skills and knowledge you’ve gained and learn how to articulate your growth in your future job searches. In this interactive workshop, you’ll reflect and process your study abroad experience, connect study abroad with your career goals, and obtain practical advice to help you transition back to the U.S.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteering is a wonderful way to integrate into and experience local culture while contributing to a worthy cause. CEA’s established relationships with non-profit organizations allow you to work with the young, old, and/or disabled. Past students say that volunteering was an important part of their study abroad experience, as it helped them improve their language skills and gain a deeper appreciation for the local culture.

*Please note: If you intend to volunteer, intern, or participate in service learning with children, you must obtain a criminal background check prior to departure for your program. Please contact your Site Specialist for more information.

AICAP
We'll enhance your courses with academic field excursions through our Academic Integrated Cultural Activities Program (AICAP). AICAP provides immersive, active learning experiences that range from cooking and flamenco workshops, to overnight excursions. AICAP activities usually meet weekly in the evenings.

Mobile Journalist Program

Want to build your digital portfolio and earn $500 while you study abroad? Join the Mobile Journalist (MOJO) program! You’ll blog, photograph, and video your experience abroad, then share them on social media.

Alumni Ambassador Program

Your study abroad adventure doesn’t have to end when your program is over. Keep sharing your study abroad love on your home campus…become an Alumni Ambassador! This internship allows you to help other students on their study abroad journeys while gaining work experience and growing your professional network.
