You'll enroll in 1 core course and 1-3 elective courses at the CEA Seville Center, and 1-2 elective courses at our partner, Pablo de Olavide University. CEA courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits; UPO courses meet for 15-75 contact hours/1-5 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours.)
Classes meet for 3 hours per week on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled in the evenings and/or on Fridays.
Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. If you choose to take a Spanish language or elective course at our partner institution, you will take another language placement exam on-site. Your final language level may be adjusted once you're on-site. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about not only France, but who I am and what I am capable of. Everybody should have the chance to study abroad because there are so many benefits.
