Program Structure

This program is designed for all students, independent of their specialties and their level of Spanish.We offer them a multidisciplinary variety of classes (in Spanish or English) that are adapted to the students´ individual academic needs.We put a particular emphasis on courses related to Spanish history and culture in its various forms with the aim of helping to improve the students´ level of Spanish, as well as facilitating their cultural immersion and knowledge about a city as multicultural and mixed as Seville.  Romans, Arabs, Jews and Christians have made their mark in this city; Itálica, the Giralda, the Cathedral and the Alcázar are good examples of this. Besides, Seville has inspired numerous artists such as Velázquez and Murillo, writers such as Cervantes, and musicians like Bizet and Rossini. They have created some of Seville´s universal mythical characters such as D. Juan Tenorio, Carmen or the Barbero de Sevilla.The academic program is complimented by extracurricular activities such as cultural visits and trips.Likewise, SAIIE offers an athletic program  for students that are interested.Students may participate in one of two four-week summer sessions that we offer, or both (six weeks in total), enrolling in one class (3-4 credits) per session.  Prior knowledge of Spanish is not a requirement and students are not required to take a Spanish language class in the summer sessions.In the summer sessions students will take classes at the SAIIE Campus.Students can take courses in the following areas:

  • Business, Economics, and Management: Business, Management, Marketing

  • Cultural Studies and Language: Spanish Culture, Spanish History, Spanish Language and Literature

  • Social Sciences: History, Political Science, Gastronomy

  • Visual and Performing Arts: Art, Art History
