Program Structure

This program offers students the opportunity to experience international education in two different environments: the SAIIE campus and EUSA (la Escuela Universitaria de Sevilla). At EUSA, the students will be able to share classes with both Spanish students and students from other European countries, which will help them to achieve an even deeper level of cultural immersion.

SAIIE has a partnership with EUSA, which allows students studying at SAIIE to take classes as well at the EUSA Campus during fall and spring terms.  The EUSA Campus is located no more than a 30 minute walk from the SAIIE facilities.

La Escuela Universitaria de Sevilla (EUSA) is a center affiliated with the University of Seville, in which you are offered different degrees.  EUSA relies on an international student body in which American, European (participants of the ERASMUS program), and Spanish students can integrate into while studying at University.

Classes are offered in Spanish and English.

EUSA FALL ACADEMIC CALENDAR FOR SAIIE STUDENTS
SAIIE and EUSA don’t have the exact same academic calendar. With the aim of making the two institutions’ calendars compatible, SAIIE students will end earlier than other EUSA International Students, therefore they will be given

extra assignments and projects to be completed, so they will complete all requirements as the other EUSA International Students. Certain classes may have more than one exam date.

Students at the EUSA Campus will take courses in the following areas:

· Audiovisual Communications: History, Technology, Writing, Culture, Advertising, Publications, Scripting, Film-Making, Spanish for Communications, Media Studies, Art, Cinema, and Business

· Journalism: Creative Writing, Art, Media, Law, Political Science, History, Language, New Reporting, Advertising, Public Relations, Cyber Culture

· Publication: Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, Media Studies, Photography, Sociology, Art, Design, Geography, and Ethics

· Tourism: Operations, Management, Business, Statistics, Law, German for Tourism, French for Tourism, Human Resources, Marketing, Political Science, and Computer Science

Program Requirements

  • A student must have sophomore standing standing at the time of participation.
  • A student must have a minimun cummulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 grading scale.
