Location: Just 350 miles south of Madrid, Seville (Spain's fourth largest city) is the most complete personification of Spain's true spirit in wealth and variety of its art treasures, in its attractions as a city, and in the charm of its inhabitants. The city reflects all the striking qualities that have come to be regarded as typically "Spanish."

Few places can boast such outstanding historic buildings as the Giralda, a Moorish tower with a Christian superstructure; the Alcazar, a Mudejar palace rich in medieval legends; and the Cathedral, the largest in the Christian world. The various city quarters are also quaint, with their narrow, winding streets and tiny squares. Seville is also renowned for bullfighting.  The famous Andalusian herds of fighting bulls, the handsome Maestranza bullring, and the Sevillian School of Bullfighters are known for their graceful and unequaled style.

Academics

Semester   
                                                                                                                                                                  In the liberal arts and international business track, students study Spanish language on the appropriate level and take the remainder of their courses in Spanish or in English, depending on their overall language ability. Students may concentrate on liberal arts or international business, or they may take courses from both areas. The intensive language track is designed for students on the beginning and intermediate levels who want to focus solely on Spanish acquisition. Students at the advanced level can take all of their courses (language, literature, liberal arts) in Spanish.

Students study about Spain while living in Spain so that the classroom experience complements, reinforces, and enhances the intercultural experience.  The curriculum in Seville is designed to take maximum advantage of the special location and the unique expertise of the faculty.

Program Cost

To help you to prepare for your semester abroad the Office of International Education has created semester budget sheets for your reference. These budget sheets are only an estimation and actual expenses may vary depending on changes in currency exchange rates, tuition increases, airfare and personal spending habits. We suggest that you set up a personalized budget to follow for the duration of your program. To view the estimated budget sheet please click here.

We strongly encourage you to print this budget sheet, and set-up a meeting with your financial aid counselor early during the application process to discuss how you will be paying for the program. Students who are eligible for financial aid may use such aid to help pay for all of the costs outlined on the budget sheet. Give your financial aid counselor a copy of the budget sheet for your program so your financial award can be adjusted to take into account the increased costs.
