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.

Enroll in 1 CEA CAPA core course and 3-4 CEA CAPA 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.
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.
