Academics

Academics

The Liberal Arts program is designed to help advanced level Spanish students improve their spoken and written Spanish skills while they pursue coursework in a variety of subjects. In addition to a range of courses offered by CIEE, students can enroll directly in courses at any of the schools at Universidad de Sevilla, Universidad Pablo de Olavide, or EUSA. From art history to service-learning, there is plenty to inspire you. 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.

CIEE Courses are taught by highly qualified professionals, many of whom are associated with the Universidad de Sevilla and Universidad Pablo de Olavide.

Universidad de Sevilla has been one of Spain’s leading institutions of higher learning since the 16th century and hosts some 75,000 students. Its many schools, departments, and institutes serve the educational needs of Spain’s most populous region.

Universidad Pablo de Olavide (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 as other areas, from biotechnology to translation. Modern facilities include campus-wide Internet access, sports facilities, science labs, and more.

EUSA (Estudios Universitarios Superiores de Andalucía) University Centre is a Spanish private university center founded in 1961 and affiliated with the University of Seville since 1996. Their official undergraduate degrees include Audiovisual Communication, Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, and Tourism. EUSA is one of the educational components that constitute the Campus Formativo of the Chamber of Commerce of Seville, a unique configuration located in the heart of Seville which has catered to the learning needs of over 55,000 national and international students.  

CIEE Seville is located in a beautifully renovated palace, originally built in 1725. It is close to the Royal Alcazar palace and a 10-minute walk from the Universidad de Seville. The building features classrooms, a computer room, student services, the Language Resource Center, and the Liberal Arts team.

Note for students taking courses directly from Host Institution(s): Students are required to stay in Seville until they have completed their exams. Official host institutions’ fall exams are in January, and official host institutions’ spring exams are in June. However, early exams in December and May may be possible, and they should be confirmed on an individual basis with the professor at the start of the regular semester session, during the add/drop period. Please note that it is up to the discretion of each professor to allow the taking of final exams before the start of the official examination period. As it is impossible to confirm your exam schedule prior to your arrival, if your priority is to leave Seville as soon as your university finals are finished, please book an airline ticket with a low change fee or a flexible departure date. 

Language placement – Prior to departure for Seville, all students take an 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, who help students with reading, writing, comprehension, and speaking. Tutorials on university course content are also offered. Students agree to speak only Spanish to encourage language and cultural acquisition.

Internship Placement – Participate in our “Internship Fair” and practice your interview skills. Placement is determined by language ability, job skills, and background. Because Spanish firms make final selections, internships in a particular company are not guaranteed. Students have interned for organizations like Marketing Publicidad, Simetrycal, Mail Boxes, CLIC, CyO Arquitectos as well as smaller firms and companies.

In CIEE courses, students are graded on midterm and final examinations, assignments, class participation, and attendance.
