Study Abroad Program - Spanish Language & Culture

General

Program Description

The sunny capital of Andalusia, Seville has so much to offer to students seeking a deeper understanding of Spanish language and culture. As one of Spain’s greatest cities throughout history, Seville is home to many beautiful and significant works of art and architecture, such as its famous Cathedral and the Hospital de la Caridad, filled with works by the celebrated Sevillian painter Murillo. Even Spain’s most revered writer, Miguel de Cervantes, was inspired by this enchanting city during its golden age as the Spanish Empire’s gateway to the Americas.

It is said that the idea for Don Quixote came to him while imprisoned here in the Royal Jail. Not only does Seville have a rich and important cultural history, but it is also very much alive today! Known worldwide for elaborate festivals like Feria de Abril and Semana Santa, flamenco dancing, and gourmet tapas, there is no better place to immerse yourself in Spanish language and culture. EUSA’s experienced faculty, engaging courses, and cultural activities will help you discover the best the city has to offer!
