About the City

About The City

The capital of Andalusia, Seville, was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is the setting of two ingenious operas, The Barber of Seville and Carmen. The great Renaissance painters Velázquez and Murillo were born here, and Ferdinand and Isabel ruled Spain from Seville’s Alcazar Palace. Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco dancing to classical, pop, and jazz concerts.

A pesar de ser una de las ciudades de España de mayor tamaño, es curiosa la percepción de nuestros estudiantes cada semestre; el hecho de poder abarcarla en pocas semanas, la hacen cercana y familiar. Sin duda la razón está en el carácter de las personas que la habitan y en el trazado histórico de la ciudad, con uno de los cascos históricos y monumentales mayores de Europa, excelente para recorrer a pie, acompañados por la bonanza de su clima. Espero que en tu estancia tú también llegues a percibir la misma sensación de familiaridad y cercanía con Sevilla.

Academics

Academics

Academic Program

This program focuses on Spanish culture and history. Special emphasis is placed on Andalusia and Seville within a European context.

Academic Culture

All courses meet daily, Monday through Friday, for three hours. Additional activities may be scheduled in the afternoon or weekends. 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.

Some of these activities include tastings of locally produced chocolate, olive oil, wine, and cerdo Ibérico. Students will also visit the markets of Triana, Feria, and Encarnación, and the some of the ancient convents in the city where sweets and jellies are still prepared.

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

Participants take classes with other CIEE students only.

Grading System

Students are normally graded on a final examination. Some courses require students to complete special individual projects and present the project to the class at the end of the session. Attendance is mandatory and unexcused absences are reflected in a participant’s final grade. Class participation is essential.

Language of Instruction

English

Faculty

Courses are taught by highly qualified faculty and professionals. All CIEE faculty are familiar with the U.S. academic system and culture. Many have studied in the U.S. Teaching methods vary from teacher to teacher.
