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. 
 

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.

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!

"The best time of my life"

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
This program really was life changing. Living with a homestay in another country is the best thing a student can do, and I loved being immersed in the culture and having to speak Spanish all the time at home. I think that this trip helped me to become more independent as well as more confident in my Spanish skills, and I look forward to putting those to use in my future studies.
