Language & Internship Quarter Program - Seville, Spain
Why choose Seville?
Seville, a beautiful and ancient city on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, is the centerpiece of your study abroad experience. Seville has a temperate climate and rich cultural life. As the land of Carmen and Don Juan, Seville embodies the culture of Southern Spain. In this picturesque city, you will discover moorish palaces and renaissance gardens, flowered patios, paintings, statues, flamenco dancing and music, bull fights at La Real de Caballería, siesta, tortillas,
and the Spanish way of life.
Language and Internship Quarter Program
Spanish Studies Abroad offers program options in Seville for those students that are on the quarter system. Students enroll in one intensive language course and gain valuable work experience pursuing an internship in the field of their choice.
Internship opportunities allow you access to the work culture and daily life of local citizens, often hidden to students studying abroad, and to more fully integrate into the local culture. Language courses are taught at our Center, and include numerous cultural activities, day trips, and excursions. In addition to living in a Spanish home, cultural events and social activities enhance the cultural element of your experience.
