Location & Culture

Click to Open

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 700,000 residents, Seville offers a large variety of cultural activities that range from the Flamenco Bienal and the European Film Festival to alternative theatre venues, bars with live music, beautiful streets and open spaces and, of course, one of the most respected bullrings in the world.

The program details

Combining theory and hands-on practice, this program is designed for students considering a career in communications. Students take courses through CIEE and with Spanish students at the Universidad de Sevilla and may also select classes in our Liberal Arts program. Along the way, students learn about Spanish culture with a range of projects and activities. Great emphasis is placed in helping students explore their host community with a greater sense of purpose and reciprocity in their exchanges.

EUSA School of Communications – Courses at this prestigious private institution are academically credited by the Universidad de Sevilla. A significant number of prestigious local media professionals and experienced faculty teach the tools, theory and history of media here.

Universidad de Sevilla – One of Spain’s leading institutions of higher learning since the 16th century, this university hosts 75,000 students. Core and elective courses for this program are hosted at the Centro de Iniciativas Culturales de la Universidad de Sevilla (CICUS), where students learn from new media professionals and present work to the public at the end of the semester.

Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) – With nearly 11,000 students, UPO is the second largest state university in Seville. Its 345-acre campus is 30-minutes from the center of the city. UPO offers undergraduate and graduate programs in traditional majors, as well other areas, from biotechnology to translation. Modern facilities include campus-wide internet access, sports facilities, science labs, and more.

CIEE Seville – Our home is a beautifully renovated palace, originally built in 1725. Close to the Royal Alcazar palace, it’s a 10-minute walk from the Universidad de Sevilla. The site includes classrooms, a computer room, student services, the Language Resource Center, and the Liberal Arts team.

Language placement – Prior to departure for Seville, all students take a scheduled CIEE online placement exam. Results determine appropriate placement in language courses. Placement in many upper-level courses depends on a high score.

Language support – Our Language Resource Center is staffed by language professors and Spanish students majoring in Spanish philology. CIEE organizes tutorials to help them progress in those content courses taught exclusively in Spanish. Tutorials are also offered for regular university courses.

Students agree to speak only Spanish to encourage language and cultural acquisition.

Direct enrollment courses are scheduled Monday through Friday. CIEE classes are only open to CIEE students. The program’s core courses usually include students from the University of Seville. Cursos para Extranjeros are open to other international students only. Direct enrollment university classes with Spanish and international students last until the end of the regular semester.

The program’s core courses: Digital Video Reporting in Context and Magazine Reporting in Context are workshops that give students the possibility of exploring their new social and cultural environment as documentarists.

  • GRADING

    In CIEE and Cursos para Extranjeros courses students are graded on mid-term and final projects, papers and/or examinations, on course assignments, and on class participation and attendance. In direct enrollment classes, professors give oral or written final exams and, sometimes, term papers. Numerical grades are given on a 100-point scale and converted to the U.S. scale.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Class attendance is mandatory, and students are expected to complete work and exams as scheduled. Students should be aware that academic and exam schedules may vary between academic institutions, and plan accordingly. During the fall semester, there is no extended vacation period.
