CEA’s study + internship program includes a personalized internship placement, a flipped classroom-style online academic course and additional elective courses. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined after you arrive.
Multicultural Workplace Internship Course
The required multicultural workplace course has been designed to help you make the most of your internship and launch your transition to professional with the refined and strengthened career skills employers are craving. The course features one hour of face-to-face coaching sessions per week while you are in-country and includes additional self-directed course content, activities and assignments equivalent to about 30-40 hours total. You will automatically be enrolled in the multicultural workplace course upon acceptance of your internship placement.
The 3 credit internship option includes the required online hybrid course and 120-180 hours at your internship placement. Together, the internship hours and course are worth 3 credits.
The 6 credit internship option also includes the required online hybrid course, but your internship placement hours are increased to 200-240 hours. Together, the internship hours and course are worth 6 credits.
Prior to submitting your application, you will select the internship option (3 or 6 credits) that works best for you. We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.
Additional Elective Courses
In addition to your internship course and placement, you will choose 1-4 CEA elective courses from our study center course options and up to 2 courses at either UPO or EUSA. You also have the option to enroll in up to 2 CEA virtual courses. This provides you with the opportunity to gain professional experience while also making progress toward your degree requirements and engaging in classes that afford a richer cultural experience.
Elective courses at both the CEA Seville Center and EUSA meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits. UPO courses meet for 15-75 contact hours/1-5 credits. Overall, you may earn 12-15 total credits. Given the demands of the internship, 12 credits are recommended.
Elective courses generally meet at various times Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. Your internship coaching session will meet weekly and your internship placement hours may take place Monday-Friday; the exact time of day and days of the week will be determined after you arrive.
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.
Career Coaching & Placement Process
Once you’ve submitted your application, your career development adventure will begin! The placement process is more than just securing an internship placement. You will engage in a career exploration and coaching journey with your internship coach to help you to identify your ideal professional pathway. During this time, you will receive 7-10 hours of professional career coaching via video, email and workshops.
You will also engage in additional interviews with our in-country internship coordinator and your potential host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization.
Upon successfully completing your in-country internship coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement that will support the personal, professional, and cross-cultural learning objectives you have identified in your career coaching process. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.
If you have confirmed an internship placement through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as visas, housing, and credit. Contact an admissions counselor for more details.
Spring 2021 Program Note: If you are enrolling in the CEA & UPO Hybrid option, please note that UPO courses will be offered exclusively online for the first month of the program. UPO classes will then resume in-person on UPO’s campus for the rest of the semester. CEA courses will be offered in person for the entire semester and as such, you are expected to be onsite in Seville on the start date of your program.
The host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
