Capital of Andalusia, Seville was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is home to the ingenious barber of Seville and the tempestuous Carmen. The great Renaissance painters Velázquez and Murillo were born here, and Ferdinand and Isabel ruled Spain from the royal apartments in the Alcazar Palace. Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop, and jazz concerts.
With 9,000 students, the Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO) is the second state run university in Seville. It is located on a 345 acre campus, about a 20-minute metro or bus ride from the center of the city. UPO offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in the traditional majors, as well as in biotechnology, environmental sciences, humanities, labor relations, second language acquisition, social work, sports sciences, and translation. Its facilities are equipped with the latest in technology, including campus-wide Internet access, computer, television, video and audio centers, an open access library, sports facilities, and science laboratories.
This program is designed for students who have 0-4 semesters of previous Spanish language study and a strong interest in business and economics. Students who are motivated to develop their Spanish language skills and learn about Spain and Europe through living in the traditional Spanish city of Sevilla will find that this program provides an ideal opportunity.
