About the City

About The City

Seville has its origins in the trade routes controlled by the Phoenicians in the 8th century BC. Romans, Goths, Muslims, and Christians established their capital here before it became the most important city in Southern Europe and gateway to the Americas in the 16th century. The commercial hub of its region, the city preserves many traces of its past and traditions. With fewer than 800,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Bienal of Flamenco and the European Film Festival to alternative theater venues and one of the most respected bullrings in the world.

Where You'll Study

Where You'll Study

CIEE STUDY CENTER

The CIEE Study Center is located in a beautifully renovated Sevillano palace built in 1725. It is centrally located, close to the Puerta de la Carne, and is a 10-minute walk from the main Universidad de Sevilla building (Tabacalera). Housed in the CIEE Study Center are classrooms, computer room, student services, and CIEE administration. CIEE professors also have an office in the Study Center, so that students may speak with them privately about issues related to their progress in class.

Close
Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

Housing, 3 meals per day, internet and weekly laundry/cleaning are included for study abroad students whether living in a homestay or a student residence hall. In homestays, all students are housed individually, although students may request to be placed with another student -each with their own room. In the residence hall, students are usually housed in doubles with a private bathroom. The vast majority of students opt to live in a homestay, which represents both a great opportunity to practice and improve language skills, as well as feel a part of the local culture. Living in student residence hall presents both unique opportunities as well as challenges as “communal living” is not for everybody and during the summer many of the local university students are taking exams or depart for summer vacation. Consequently, CIEE organizes a series of cultural and linguistic activities with local university student for ALL summer session participants.

Close
Orientations

Orientations

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Seville even before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online pre-departure orientation. Meeting with students online, the resident coordinators share information about the program and site, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the pre-departure orientation is simple—to help you understand more about the program, and identify your objectives so that you arrive well-informed and return home having made significant progress towards your goals.

The mandatory orientation session conducted in Seville at the beginning of the program will introduce you to the country, culture, and academic program, and provide practical information about living in Spain. It includes both structured activities and independent sightseeing. Ongoing support is provided by CIEE staff on an individual and group basis throughout the program.

Close
Internet

Internet

You are encouraged to bring a wireless-enabled laptop. All housing options have Internet connections, while the CIEE Study Center offers wireless access. Computers at the CIEE Study Center are also available for academic purposes.

Close
Culture

Culture

The academic study abroad program is supplemented with field trips and excursions to points of interest in Seville and Spain, and highlight topics covered in class. Prospective day excursions may include trips to Córdoba, Aracena, and Cádiz. Students will also travel to different cities of Andalusia for one weekend each session. These may include trips to Granada, Malaga, or Cádiz.

INTERCAMBIOS

A conversation exchange program with Spanish students is an important part of the program. Intercambios give you the chance to practice what you are learning in language courses, as well as help you become more integrated into Spanish student life and into the life and culture of Seville.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

Study abroad students have the opportunity to work with children and the elderly, as well as other humanitarian associations. Students may also become involved in such international organizations as Amnesty International. Volunteer teaching opportunities in local schools are also available for future teachers.

Close
Academics

Academics

This study abroad program is designed for students considering a career in any communication environment. Students gain valuable hands-on experience in a multifaceted academic and professional environment. CIEE guarantees the social and cultural immersion of participants in the host society via specialized projects and extra-curricular activities.

ONLINE PLACEMENT EXAM

Prior to departure for Seville, all study abroad students are required to take a CIEE online placement exam. The purpose of this exam is to determine the student’s level of Spanish for appropriate placement in language courses. Students should take this exam seriously, as placement in many upper-level courses depends upon a high online placement exam score.

Academic Culture

All courses meet daily, Monday through Friday, for three hours. Additional cultural activities may be scheduled in the afternoon. The academic calendar includes dates for obligatory trips scheduled out of Seville. These hands-on learning experiences contribute greatly to the student’s experience abroad. Instruction is interactive and dynamic. Many lectures take place in situ, so that the student can feel a part of the fascinating culture they are studying.

Students will have one “free day” during each session, either a Monday or Friday, to allow for individual travel. Dates will be provided prior to departure. While extracurricular activities and personal travel contribute greatly to the student’s overall European experience, attendance is mandatory for both classes and required events. Early departure for, or late return from, personal trips on weekends is not permitted. Any extended travel should take place prior to the start of the program or upon completion of the program.

NATURE OF CLASSES

CIEE courses are with CIEE study abroad students.

CIEE COMMUNITY LANGUAGE COMMITMENT

Students take part in the CIEE Community Language Commitment by speaking Spanish at all times (except in emergencies). This fosters a learning community that contributes to both Spanish language proficiency and understanding of Spanish society.

GRADING SYSTEM

In CIEE courses, students are graded on the basis of mid-term and final examinations and/or projects, class participation, and attendance. A paper in Spanish is required in many CIEE courses. Numerical grades are given based on a 10-point scale and converted to the U.S. grading scale.

LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION

Spanish

FACULTY

The courses are taught by professionals of the different fields who possess experience in collaborative and experiential learning projects.

CIEE Study Center Syllabi

To view the most recent syllabi for courses taught by CIEE at our Study Centers, visit our syllabi site.

Session I

COMM 3006 SCMJ/SPAN 3003 SCMJ: Spanish Skills in Context: Podcast Reporting
This hands-on course combines a revision of advanced Spanish language skills with the production of an audio podcast featuring interviews, broadcasting of events, docudramas, news, and debates. Students develop written exercises intended for the ear and not for the eye therefore emphasizing the expressiveness of sound atmospheres and the imaginary provided by music to support their texts. They discover and share contents in Spanish about their experiences in the host society as they expand their linguistic, cultural, and social competencies while at the same time experimenting with locution, recording, and editing techniques. All final projects are linked to the website of the program mas + menos.

Session II

COMM 3002 SESU Social Justice, Acton and Media: Stories That Matter
This course will enhance news reporting skills by working with students on how to communicate what is just through the analysis of case studies related to justice, human rights and social action. We will examine themes related to cooperation, volunteering, NGOS, education for development and other projects tightly connected with the denominated third sector. The impact of technology and the apparent homogenization produced by the phenomenon of globalization conceal from view those stories that really matter: the ones that liberate, the ones that liberate us. An emancipatory education and an inclusive community play a critical role in the relationships between the community, the social networks and the media.

Session III

COMM 3004 SCMJ/HISP 3001 SCMJ: Digital and Visual Culture in Contemporary Spain
This course introduces students to the active and multidisciplinary scene of digital production in Spain and Europe, with an emphasis on the work of individuals and collectives who address mass media issues from a social and cultural critical perspective. The course connects students with a fairly young and very intellectually active segment of the host society by visiting organizations and production centers, and by participating in events organized around the city. Special emphasis is placed on the notion of shared cultural action and shared creativity through new media.
