Intensive Language Study 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, siesta, tortillas, and the Spanish way of life.

Intensive Language Study Quarter Program

Spanish Studies Abroad offers program options in Seville for those students that are on the quarter system. Students enroll in two intensive language courses and complement their studies by pursuing an Independent Research Project (IRP). Courses are taught at our Center's historic building in downtown Seville, and includes 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. At the Center, you also benefit from the expertise of our staff, who guide you to more fully immerse yourself in the sevillano community.
