About the Program

There are so many ways to gain language proficiency and learn about culture; this program utilizes ways that are hands-on, interactive, and focused on the local community. In this flexible program, you can choose how you want to engage! During the semester you can enroll in a service learning course or in a second language acquisition course, and engage in the local community where you'll learn both language and culture interactively. Courses are available at all levels of Spanish language ability, including electives taught in English and Spanish, and all are designed to help you gain a better understanding of Spanish and Sevillian culture, history, and society. In the summer, you’ll engage with the community through other culture-focused courses and workshops.

Enjoy interactive courses that incorporate a global perspective at the CEA Seville Center. Your learning comes to life through hands-on experiences that turn Seville into a living classroom. The Center is conveniently located in the center of the city, near Seville’s stunning la Giralda cathedral. Please note that coursework for the Virtual Internship program will take place remotely.

When in Seville, live as the locals do! Choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Please note that housing is not included in Virtual Internship programs.

Program Structure

Each semester, you'll enroll in 1 core course and 3-4 elective courses. You also have the option to enroll in up to 2 CEA virtual courses. Courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours) per semester; academic year students may earn 24-30 credits (up to 450 contact hours).

Classes meet on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. The optional service learning course requires an additional 2.5 hours per week in a placement within the community.  Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. 

CEA virtual courses are taught in English using an online Learning Management System. You are expected to be an active participant in online forums, in addition to completing your regular readings, videos and homework. You can expect a blend of synchronous (live) and asynchronous (at your own pace) learning approaches that provide individual attention and flexibility for your learning style. Engaging in your “own way” gives you an opportunity to showcase your engagement in any topic or assignment while being part of an online global learning community.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. 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. If you choose to take a Spanish language or elective course, to ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home university 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.

Córdoba

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.
