In order to participate in the CASA-Sevilla program, students must have completed at least five semesters of Spanish at the university level before arriving in Seville. Participants take a combination of courses offered at both the CASA-Sevilla Center and at the University of Seville. A typical semester course load includes the following:
Más allá de los estereotipos: Encuentros con la historia, sociedad, lengua y cultura de Sevilla course, which runs for several weeks before classes begin at the University of Seville and continues in a condensed form throughout the academic semester. It is required for all participants in their first semester.
One course, related to Spain or Latin America, taught at the CASA-Sevilla Center by a University of Seville professor.
Three courses taken directly at the University of Seville, where participants choose from a large variety of disciplines and are immersed with local students.
The CASA-Sevilla program is a Spanish immersion program, and participants should be prepared to speak Spanish at all times throughout their stay in Seville. Accordingly, there is a Spanish-only language pledge that students must sign - it is strictly enforced by program staff in the Center and on program activities.
