Auburn University´s Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures has recently launched a new semester program in Seville, Spain offering Auburn students the opportunity to take classes through the University of Seville. The University of Seville was founded in 1505 and has more than 65,000 students. The campus and its departments are spread throughout the city. Auburn students will be taking courses in one of the city's most historic monuments, an 18th-century Baroque style building that was once the Royal Tobacco Factory and setting for the opera Carmen.
Auburn students may participate in either the fall, spring or both semesters. Auburn University's Spanish Language, Culture and Internship program offers a wonderful setting to meet international students and make lifelong friends, take interesting courses and add an international dimension to your studies.

The academic component of the internship includes leadership and team-based coaching and incorporates Myers-Briggs training to enhance self-awareness and an understanding of team dynamics.
The University of Seville offers Spanish-language courses and content courses available in both Spanish and English. Auburn students will be required to take at least one Spanish language course.

Seville is the artistic, cultural and financial capital of Southern Spain. The city is renowned for its warm climate and friendly culture, making it an ideal setting for language learning and cultural integration. A stroll through the city's winding cobblestone streets reveals a wide array of bustling sidewalk cafes and tapas bars, spontaneous flamenco performances and an active nightlife. Internationally known for the grandeur of its Easter Week processions (known as Semana Santa) and April Fair, Seville offers a variety of rich cultural experiences set against historical Roman, Muslim, and Jewish influence.
You will have the opportunity to explore streets built by Rome for its victorious legions. The city of Itálica just a few miles outside Seville is the birthplace of the two first emperors (Trajan and Adrian). You may also visit the minarets and port-defense towers dating back to Seville's Moorish 12th and 13th centuries. The multiple churches in the city show signs of the Middle Ages and the importance of the Catholic faith. Seville, where Christopher Columbus is buried, was the port of the world during the XVI century and is the home of the Indian Archives. If you wish to learn more about modern and contemporary history, the city is full of old pavilions from the Iberoamerican Exposition of 1929 and the Universal Exposition of 1992.
Seville has an active community of students at the University of Seville, where Auburn students can join a language exchange program to meet locals, and participate in games, music events, theatrical clubs creative writing groups and competitive sports events such as men's and women's soccer, volleyball and basketball.
