Science in Sevilla Summer

Worried by your school’s seemingly-endless list of pre-requisite and general education courses? UNC in Sevilla’s Science Summer program gives you the opportunity to tackle two important requisites for many science majors, introduction to organic chemistry and the foreign language requirement, while living with a Spanish family in the heart of southern Spain. For five weeks, live in one of Spain’s largest cities and complete both Introduction to Organic Chemistry I (3 credits), without a lab, and either a fourth or fifth semester Spanish course (3 credits). The language course is taught exclusively in Spanish by a native speaker, while organic chemistry is taught in English by a professor from UNC. Your language learning will move out of the classroom and into the streets, shops, and cafés of Seville and you will visit some of Spain’s most famous landmarks, like the cathedral-mosque in Córdoba and the Alhambra castle in Granada.

Museo de Bellas Artes. Originally a convent, this museum is tucked away near the Plaza de Armas bus station and shopping mall. Its collection of Seville’s art throughout the centuries will deepen your understanding of the city’s history.

The weather in Sevilla
Weather from OpenWeatherMap

Learn about Spain’s life and language from native Spaniards. Subjects like grammar, history, politics, literature, and art come to life as you are surrounded by a rich and vibrant culture whose roots reach back to the Roman Empire. Live in the city that connected Spain to the New World and gave birth to flamenco. Balance coursework with both unique and everyday activities that demonstrate how language learning is far more than just a mental exercise: it is the very essence of life.

Originally built for the Exposición Iberoamericana in 1929, the plaza’s unique “C” shaped building now houses numerous government organizations. The building’s inner curve displays a number of mosaics, representing different parts of Spain, and sits against a moat. Immediately adjacent to the plaza is the Maria Luisa Park, which is a green oasis in the middle of Sevilla’s urban landscape.

Student Life

All students in the UNC in Sevilla program live with a host family. Host families take care of laundry, cleaning, and other rooming concerns. Families are carefully chosen by CINECU staff. Most families house students for economic reasons but are warm and thoughtful people.

Activities and Trips

In addition to visiting different historic sites around the city, there will be several mandatory class trips during your time in Sevilla that will take you outside the city:



Just 20 minutes outside of Sevilla, the Roman city of Itálica gave the Roman world two emperors: Trajan and Hadrian. These days, it is an area of well-preserved Roman ruins, which include the remains of dwellings and a large amphitheater. Students will walk inside the amphitheater on the same ground where gladiator competitions took place while spectators looked on from above.



There are several beautiful beaches along Spain’s southern coast that are a short drive away from Sevilla, and if the weather permits, we will spend an afternoon enjoying one of them.



Students will take a day trip to the city of Córdoba, where they will visit the city’s Jewish quarter, which includes a synagogue from the 14th century, and the Mezquita-Catedral, a unique building whose beautiful architecture and complex history illustrate the multicultural history of Andalusia.



We will take an overnight trip to visit this beautiful mountain city. Students will visit the city’s cathedral and Capilla Real, where King Ferdinand and Queen Isabel are buried. There will also be a tour of La Alhambra, Spain’s most famous Moorish castle, and one of the most visited monuments in Spain.

Did you know in Sevilla #welovepeople?

“I loved the city of Sevilla–it was big enough that there was always something going on yet small enough that it wasn’t overwhelming. Also it was a great environment to learn Spanish in because the people are very friendly and want to talk to you.”
“I enjoyed my teachers at EUSA. And I believe that taking the majority of my classes at the University helped my ability to understand, read and write Spanish.”
“The history of Spain was very interesting and relevant. I was there during the November elections and we really got to learn a lot about the parties and locals’ sentiments towards the candidates.”
“The best characteristic is that everything is taught in Spanish; my Spanish improved drastically because I had no choice but to speak it throughout the day.”
