Are you interested in studying Spanish language and culture? The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS) “Seville Summer” Program, sponsored by Broward College and St. Bonaventure University, allows you to immerse yourself in the Spanish language, culture and society of Spain.
Located in Seville, this program draws upon the resources of both the University of Seville and the International College of Seville (ICS). Both border a beautiful park near the center of the city, with easy access to the many cultural and historical attractions of Seville.
Each week, one Culture and Society class session is given on-site at a place of historic relevance. With these exhaustive visits students are able to see and experience, first-hand, the subject matter studied. On-site classes are given at the following locations: The Archeological Museum of Seville; The ancient Roman city of Itálica; The Royal Palace or Alcázar, the Cathedral, and the Jewish Quarters.
During the Summer program, ICS students are taken on four distinct trips throughout Andalusia and Morocco, complete with air-conditioned motorcoach and English-speaking guide. The organized group trips are to the city of Córdoba and Jerez de la Frontera & Cadiz. A seven-day trip to Morocco is included and organized by the International College of Seville (ICS). Like the cultural visits to points of interest within the city, all organized summer trips are included in student tuition fees.
Students participating will be living with Spanish families during their stay in Seville.
Academic features of the trip include:
- Spanish language (beginning through advanced level)
- Culture and Society of Spain (taught in Spanish and English)
Students will earn 6 credits total.
Also available is the study of Arabic language and culture.
