The Liberal Arts program is designed for students at the high intermediate and advanced level to improve their spoken and written Spanish while pursuing coursework in a variety of subjects. In addition to a wide range of courses offered by CIEE, you can also choose to enroll in Cursos para Extranjeros at the Universidad de Sevilla (with other international students), and/or up to 2 direct enrollment classes with Spaniards at the Universidad de Sevilla or Universidad Pablo de Olavide.
You will take one intensive course for the first few weeks of the program, based upon the result of the online language placement exam. Upon completion of the Intensive Session, you will begin your semester which includes a combination of four courses from CIEE Study Center (CSCS) courses, Cursos para Extranjeros at the Universidad de Sevilla, and regular University classes at the Universidad de Sevilla and UPO. Students in Liberal Arts can take courses offered in the other advanced language programs (Business & Society, Teaching Development, and Communications, New Media, & Journalism).
All courses are taught in Spanish.
