Overview
CIEE-Seville: Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts in Sevilla is designed for students with advanced language ability who want to achieve fluency in Spanish and pursue course work in a wide variety of fields. Participants are encouraged to enroll in regular university courses where they can get to know Spanish students and experience typical Spanish university life.

Sevilla is the political, religious, cultural and intellectual capital of Andalucia. The city's cathedral and the royal Alcazar Palace, located in the historic city center, exhibit the influences of the Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures that flourished in Sevilla until the late 15th century. Ferdinand and Isabella sent Columbus, Magellan and Vespucci to the new world from the banks of the Guadalquivir River.

The Liberal Arts program is located in the humanities faculty of the University of Sevilla. After a three-week intensive language course, students enroll in four courses, a combination of specially designed CIEE courses, courses in Cursos para Extranjeros and regular university courses. The academic program is supplemented with excursions to points of interest in Seville and in the surrounding regions of Spain.
