Fall and spring semesters in Seville allow you to experience working in a number of different business and healthcare environments. You will learn about what goes into running diverse hospitals, medical facilities, and companies from people with years of experience in the field.
It is essential that applicants have completed a minimum of 5 semesters of Spanish (or equivalent) or get the program’s director’s consent. Seville is known for having one of the Spanish-speaking world’s more challenging accents, after a few months here, you will be able to see your improvement!
During a semester in Seville, students will complete 4-5 courses with 45 contact hours. Courses focus on improving Spanish linguistic competence and cultural familiarity through topics such as business, cinema, culture, grammar, health, and literature. Most courses will also include site visits and guest speakers. Additionally, LIH and LAIB majors will have opportunities to experience how many different types of healthcare facilities and businesses operate. This includes both private and public hospitals, as well as private practices and local companies.
Students with advanced Spanish proficiency and/or permission of the program’s director, will be able to complete an internship of 135 hours within the healthcare world, or 140 hours in a local business/company. The internship experience, coupled with a series of site visits and seminars, will allow students to directly observe the structural and functional organization of the healthcare system in Andalusia as well as the business world. This first-hand experience with international healthcare systems and companies is one the highlights of the program for most students.
