Welcome to UNC SAS Spring

The Spanish Advanced Studies (SAS) program is for students who have completed Advanced Grammar and Composition (SPAN 300) or the equivalent. The program offers year, fall, and spring options.

After taking a month-long course on Contemporary Spanish Society, SAS students take regular university courses with Spanish students at the Campus Universitario EUSA or at the Universidad de Sevilla. SAS students may choose courses from any university degree at EUSA and from many departments at the Universidad de Sevilla. SAS students will also have the option of taking courses designed by the program specifically for them, UNC-CINECU courses. These courses are taught by local professors.

SAS Course Offerings and Equivalencies

Students in the Spanish Advanced Studies (SAS) Program take two types of courses, courses offered at CINECU exclusively for SAS students on the UNC in Sevilla program and regular university courses at the Campus Universitario EUSA or the Universidad de Sevilla with native speakers.

Campus Universitario EUSA – Cursos Regulares

Students in the Spanish Advanced Studies (SAS) program may choose courses from the regular offerings of the grados universitarios at the Campus Universitario EUSA. Note that the “curso” (i.e., Curso 1°) refers to the year of the class in the Spanish curriculum (1° = ‘first year’, 2° = ‘second year’, 3° = ‘third year’, etc). The higher the course, the more background information you will be expected to know.

Instructions on finding course schedules and syllabi:
You should look for course information on the website of Campus Universitario EUSA. In order to select courses, you will need to obtain the list of courses offered for the particular degree in which you are interested.

By clicking on Oferta Académica, you will arrive at a list of the degree programs offered by EUSA. Remember that you may only take classes in the Grados Universitarios. Click on the grado in which you are interested, then on Plan de Estudios/Profesorado to find more information about the classes offered. A class is called an asignatura and a syllabus is called a programa.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:
1. When looking at classes, only the classes taught in the semester in which you are studying are available to you. These classes are listed as Semestre 1 or Semestre 2. You should look for Semestre 1 when searching for first semester (Fall) classes. Spring semester students will look for Semestre 2.

2. The syllabi are not given for the “Asignaturas optativas” which are degree elective classes. All degree elective classes may not be taught every semester. The university will publish the full list of classes at the beginning of the academic year.

Universidad de Sevilla – Cursos Regulares

Students in the Spanish Advanced Studies (SAS) program may choose courses from the regular offerings of many of the facultades of the Universidad de Sevilla. Note that the “curso” (i.e., Curso 1°) refers to the year of the course in the Spanish curriculum (1° = ‘first year’, 2° = ‘second year’, 3° = ‘third year’, etc). The higher the course, the more background information you will be expected to know.

When you look at the class schedules (horarios) for each facultad, you should look at the schedules for the GRADO. The classes in the MASTERS level are not open to you.

In order to select courses, you will need to obtain the list of courses offered for the particular facultad in which you are interested. There is no central registration system or course listing, so you will have to check each facultad separately.

Instructions on finding course schedules and syllabi:

You should look for course information on the website of Universidad de Sevilla

By clicking on Centros y departamentos, then Centros Propios you will arrive at a list of all the escuelas and facultades of the Universidad de Sevilla. Click on the escuela or facultad then on Direccion de Internet to go to the homepage for the facultad. Not all will have the course listing and syllabi online. A syllabus is called a programa, so a list of the course syllabi may be called “Programas de las asignaturas”. Schedules and syllabi may normally be found under headings such as, Docencia or Ordenación Docente.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

  • 1. There are year long and semester-long classes. When looking at schedules, only the classes taught in the semester in which you are studying are available to you. Depending on the facultad they will denote whether a class is first semester, second semester, or year-long in different ways. You should look for 1ºC, primer cuatrimestre, 1C, or C1 when searching for first semester (Fall) classes. Spring semester students will look for 2ºC, segundo cuatrimestre, 2C or C2.
  • 2. When choosing classes remember that the different facultades are spread throughout the city and are not located on one central campus like at UNC. You will need to take this into account if you are interested in a class in Filologia from 10-11 am, and another class in Empresariales from 11-12. These are not in the same building and you will not be able to take the classes back to back. However, there is an exception. Filologia and Geografía e Historia share a building and you would be able to take classes in those facultades back to back.
  • 3.**Due to high demand, 1st year Grado courses are not available in any facultad. You will only be able to enroll in 2nd year classes and above.

Academic Info

Registration

You will not register for classes until you arrive in Sevilla. An academic meeting will be held to provide you with more information on the registration process.

Registration Deadlines

The SAS Course Registration Form should be submitted to the program office by:

  • Fall Semester: late October.
  • Spring Semester: late January.

*The actual dates will be confirmed by the on-site staff once you arrive in Sevilla.

The drop deadline for courses depends on when regular university courses begin. You will be informed of the deadline well in advance.

Course Load

You will earn 15-18 credit hours for the semester as follows:

In the SAS program, students usually enroll in a minimum five courses in a given semester. This is normally 15 credit hours. However, a few courses are worth four credit courses which could raise your total credit hours to 16 or 17 hours. The specific number and types of courses you take will depend on your personal linguistic and academic preparation and needs:

  • All students will receive 3 credit hours for the September or January Contemporary Spanish Society course.
  • After the Contemporary Spanish Society course has ended, students take a combination of UNC-CINECU and regular university courses. Students will normally take two UNC-CINECU courses and two regular university courses.
  • Students may not enroll in more than two UNC-CINECU courses.

Notes on Registration
As is true for registration at your home college or university, it is the responsibility of each student to make sure that (s)he has officially registered all course changes with the program.

Note that:

If you are given a “no presentado” in a course because you stopped attending a course in which you were registered and failed to make the change in your UNC registration, you will be given a failing grade on your official program transcript. Credit for a failed class will not be transferred, but a record of the course and grade will remain on your program transcript.

Non-UNC students should be aware of their home institution’s policy regarding courses and credit hours.

Course Information

For regular university courses, you can usually obtain a course description/syllabus online on the website for a particular degree program. This description/syllabus should be kept with any written work you do for the course in case your home university asks for documentation concerning course content. See “Campus Universitario EUSA” or “Universidad de Sevilla-Cursos Regulares” under “Course Offerings” for information on how to navigate those websites.

Class Attendance

Although different university professors will have different rules concerning class attendance, you are expected to attend classes on a regular basis, take all exams as scheduled by the professor, and turn in written work as required for the individual course. In no case will the UNC-CINECU staff come to your defense if you receive a low grade in a course due to your failure to attend class or to turn in written work.

You should also be aware that:

  • Traveling is an educational experience, but you are expected to schedule your traveling around your academic needs, not vice versa. If you are out of town and in the process miss an exam or fail to turn in written work, you will receive an “F” for that portion of your grade.
  • In order to receive credit for a course, you must be in Sevilla for the entire semester and take the final exam at the end of the course. If you decide to drop out of the program before the completion of a semester, you will receive no credit for courses that you began but did not finish.
  • If you miss a final exam due to illness or other legitimate reason, you are expected to reschedule the exam with the professor and remain in Sevilla until you complete the requirements for the course. It will not be possible to make up work in the U.S.

Grades

All grades (notas, calificaciones) in courses will be based either on a number scale (1-10, 10 being the highest grade) or the words sobresaliente, notable, aprobado, suspenso. Students will need to receive a grade of 5 or aprobado in order to receive UNC transfer equivalency (TREQ) credit. Please refer to Credit Information Sheet on the UNC Study Abroad website.
