Spanish Studies Abroad is pleased to offer a special program for Fall 2020. This program will be delivered virtually from our Seville Center for Cross-Cultural Study. It is designed for students who cannot travel for a study abroad program but still are looking to develop their Spanish language skills and cultural understanding of Spain through an immersive curriculum.
Through this program, students with an intermediate level of Spanish or higher will be able to experience elements of the culture of Seville and Andalucía.
Students can enroll part time and take as little as one course. Or they can take a full-time semester of 15 U.S. university credits.
An optional “expedition” trip will be held in January, 2021 for participants for 10 days to experience the culture in person. This will be offered at a very special price for participants of the virtual program. Excluding airfare, the cost is US $1,700.
