PROGRAM IN LANGUAGE, SOCIETY, & CULTURAL STUDIES – Course Listing and Equivalencies

 

During a semester in Sevilla, students will complete 4-5 courses and earn 12-15 academic credits. These courses have been pre-approved for Ohio State graded credit. Courses focus on improving Spanish linguistic competence and cultural familiarity through topics such as business, cinema, culture, grammar, health, and literature. All courses feature face-to-face instruction with the same number of contact hours as their Ohio State equivalents and some also include service-learning or other community-engagement components. The program also provides cultural activities and excursions to complement in-class learning and to maximize cultural understanding.

 

Courses are taught at EUSA (Estudios Universitarios y Superiores de Andalucía), affiliated with the University of Sevilla. EUSA is a private school near Nervión, just a short walk away from historical monuments, parks, shopping centers and a major soccer stadium. EUSA provides a modern computer lab with traditional Internet access. There is also an in-house library and a cafeteria on site, where you can experience daily interaction with Spanish students.
