Program Description:

UGA- Franklin- UGA en España, Seville Summer

The Seville program is a seven-week stay in Spain’s storied cultural capital and the undisputed heart of Andalucía. Daily classes on Spanish culture, language, and business are taught by local academics from the universities of Seville and Pablo de Olavide, and students live and have three meals a day with local families. 

Students in Seville will also have the option of participating in an add-on program in Marrakesh, Morocco, where they will have an intensive, 10-day stay studying and touring the aspects of Islamic culture that have influenced Spanish culture and history as well as that of France and indeed much of Western Europe.

Program Location  

This vivid and vibrant city on the Guadalquivir River has a color and a heat all its own.  Rivaling Valencia as Spain’s third largest city, Seville is both a pulsing urban center and a place of sprawling gardens and lazy patios, where modern streetcars glide past the gothic Cathedral and the Moorish architecture of the Giralda while green-minded sevillanos zip along the bike lanes that thread the entire city. 

A veritable micro-culture unto itself, Seville also offers amazing food and a thriving summer nightlife that awakens as the cool of the evening sets in.  Students have guided tours of Seville’s historic barrios and world-famous Golden Age and Moorish buildings, soccer matches and tapas outings, as well as the chance for a first-hand view of the world of tauromaquia, bull-fighting.

Summer 2017 Participant
"The best time of my life"

Maia Peri Selsky, Summer 2017 Participant
Study abroad in Sevilla was the greatest experience of my life. The city, the people and its culture are incredible and anyone who has the opportunity should definitely take advantage of studying there!

Kelly Marie Probst, Summer 2017 Participant
The program directors treated us so well and I learned more from the excursions and classes than I could have imagined!

This trip taught me a great deal about adaptability in the face of new and/or frustrating situations.
