If you are a student who would like to study in Spain, but a semester or year does not seem possible due to on-campus commitments, consider the Summer in Sevilla program. On this six week program you will take two classes for a total of 6 credits. There are classes for intermediate and advanced students chosen from the areas of language, culture, literature and history. You will earn credits toward the Spanish major or minor while living in one of the most beautiful cities in Spain.


UNC in Sevilla’s Science Summer program gives you the opportunity to tackle important requirements for many science majors 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 a science course and a Spanish course. The language course is taught exclusively in Spanish by a native speaker, while science courses are 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.


Did you think it was a joke when you heard that you could complete your Spanish Minor for the Professions (Business track) in one summer? Not only in one summer, but also abroad in the beloved, quintessentially Andalusian city of Seville, Spain? The UNC in Sevilla’s Spanish Minor for the Profession (Business) Summer Program offers the unique chance to do just that—complete your minor in a summer full of culturally vibrant experiences, from exploring the centuries of history along cobblestone streets to the richness of Flamenco music and dance, while savoring the endless variety of tapas sevillanas. All of this, along with firsthand knowledge of exciting businesses, well established and start-up companies, make this an opportunity second to none.

Why study in Sevilla this summer?

Imagine spending your summer in the heart of southern Spain and living with a Spanish family. Absorb the language of shopping and soccer games. Learn in the classroom and apply your knowledge in the terraces of cafés and tapas bars.

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.

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.

CINECU staff members interview all host families and personally visit their homes in order to ensure that the locations are safe for students and that all homes are in order.
If you choose to live in Estanislao del Campo residence hall, you will be able to access your building 24 hours a day, and facility staff members are always available.

CINECU staff is also available 24/7 to help students deal with any problems that may arise during your stay.

During your time in Sevilla, you will also have access to CINECU´s library and EUSA´s facilities, which includes a computer lab with high-speed internet access, free Wifi all over campus and free printing. There is also an on-site café where you can get a quick snack or recharge your batteries with a café con leche.

If you live with a host family, all your meals will be prepared, unless previous arrangements are made. This allows you to personally experience the Spanish diet and eating schedule. Of course vegetarians and vegans will be accommodated.

However, be sure to communicate any dietary restrictions or requirements to CINECU´s staff as early as possible to ensure that your needs are met. In Estanislao del Campo´s residence hall each student’s room has a private kitchen with a stove, refrigerator, pots, and cutlery, where you will be able to prepare food whenever you want to.

Alternately, the dining hall provides homemade Spanish food 3 meals a day. The residence hall also has an on-site convenience store and is only several blocks from a local supermarket.


Activities and Trips

During your six weeks in Seville, you can choose to participate in the following site visits and trips that highlight different facets of Andalusia and its history.


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.
