Study Abroad in Spain this summer.

Seville: Academics & Athletics

May 26 - July 2, 2022 (five weeks)

Addressing the needs of both students and student-athletes, this program takes your training into Seville, one of Spain’s most important cities, balancing academic, cultural, and athletic activities. With a full-immersion language program, participants are quickly able to apply their lessons to real life in the houses, stores, and stadiums of Seville.

Seville (Sevilla) is the capital city of Andalusia (2.5 hours away from Madrid), one of the most visited, colorful, and historically significant regions of Spain. Seville is perhaps best known for being one of the most important Moorish kingdoms of the Middle Ages and the center of trade with the New World during the colonial era. In addition, many of the typically “Spanish” cultural phenomena that attract tourists (flamenco, bullfighting, tapas, orange trees and olive orchards) are identified with this southern city.

All program participants will have the opportunity to study Spanish in a university classroom and train in a private gym under the supervision of the program on-site athletic coordinator, as well as attending local sporting and cultural events.
