Study abroad in southern Spain and immerse yourself in the life of Sevilla, a city that served as a cultural axis between the New World and Europe for centuries.

Trips will include field trips to both healthcare and cultural sites in and around Sevilla as well as trips to the region’s famous cultural sites including visits to Cordoba and Granada. Students will conduct a “disease outbreak investigation,” meet with healthcare leaders and learn how Europe has successfully dealt with past disease outbreaks. In addition, students will gain an appreciation of the cultural and historical sites of Sevilla. Students will live with Spanish families, giving them the opportunity to learn more about Spanish language and culture outside of the classroom.
