The Language, Society and Cultural Studies (LSCS) program is intended for students who have completed four semesters of college Spanish (SPAN 204) or the equivalent. In LSCS students will choose five of the ten courses offered. Subject areas include art, language, literature, history, and politics. Classes are taken with other LSCS students at CINECU. The program offers year, fall, or spring options. Year long students who begin in the LSCS program in the fall semester will move up to the Specialized Area Studies (SAS) program for the Spring semester.
Students will choose from classes offered in Spanish and in English. You will choose five classes from the classes listed below. You may choose up to two classes taught in English.
Below are the courses that may be offered for LSCS students. NOTE: Not all classes will be offered every semester.
For information on general education and Spanish requirements, please refer to the Credit Information section of the Sevilla Program brochure found on the UNC Study Abroad websiteVIEW WEB
The maximum number of credit hours you may carry in any given semester is 18. The minimum number of credit hours per semester is 15.
You will register for classes before arriving in Sevilla. You will be allowed to make changes to your schedule during the first week of classes.
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.
Non-UNC students should be aware of their home institution’s policy regarding courses and credit hours.
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:
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 for more information.
