Students participating in this program will complete their course work both at CEA Seville Center and at the University of Seville (USS). Students of all language levels are able to benefit from both learning environments and take courses in English at one of the largest and most important institutions in Seville. Students will focus on Spanish language acquisition while gaining a better understanding of the history, customs, and people of Seville and Spain through a variety of electives.
With a population less than 1 million, Seville offers you a small-town feel compared to Madrid and Barcelona. Located in Southern Spain, Seville is considered the guardian of all that is traditional Andalusian culture. Seville has a very centralized historic district, the largest in Europe, which is very pedestrian friendly. Renowned as the birthplace of flamenco dance, Seville also is home to stunning architecture, including the world's largest Gothic cathedral, La Giralda, and the Alcazar – a 14th Century palace.
Engage in true Seville culture through a myriad of traditional Spanish entertainment, including bullfighting, flamenco dance and festivals, such as Semana Santa and Feria de Abril. Lining the streets are terrace cafés where people meet to enjoy their afternoon café con leche. Relax at a local tapas bar to enjoy good food and conversation after a day of strolling through the shaded, winding alleyways of the Barrio Santa Cruz, the old Jewish quarter.
