In Spring 2019, you have the chance to study for 12 weeks in Seville, our exciting new Spanish location! Experience life in the vibrant capital of Andalucia, Spain's historic southern region while enrolled in CSU/UC transferable community college courses. Steeped in thousands of years of history, the city boasts some of the most striking architecture, such as the Moorish Alcazar, the Gothic Cathedral, and the Renaissance Revival Plaza de España, and the influence of its many inhabitants can still be seen today. Within easy reach of the other southern cities of Cordoba, Granada and Malaga, Seville is also well connected with the rest of Spain and Europe by bus, high speed rail and plane. The Portuguese border sits just over an hour's drive away, and northern Morocco is just a short ferry ride away.
