Spring LSCS Program

Program Overview

The Language, Society and Cultural Studies (LSCS) program is intended for students who have completed at least Intermediate Spanish Composition (Spanish 3403). In LSCS, students will choose four to five of the courses offered to earn 12-15 academic credits. These classes have been pre-approved for graded credit by The Ohio State University. Classes are taken with other LSCS students at COWA.



During a semester in Seville, students will complete 4-5 courses and earn 12-15 academic credits. These courses have been pre-approved for Ohio State graded credit. Courses focus on improving Spanish linguistic competence and cultural familiarity through topics such as business, cinema, culture, grammar, health, and literature. All courses feature face-to-face instruction with the same number of contact hours as their Ohio State equivalents and some also include service-learning or other community-engagement components. The program also provides cultural activities and excursions to complement in-class learning and to maximize cultural understanding.


Courses are taught at EUSA (Estudios Universitarios y Superiores de Andalucía), affiliated with the University of Seville. EUSA is a private school near Nervión, just a short walk away from historical monuments, parks, shopping centers and a major soccer stadium. EUSA provides a modern computer lab with traditional Internet access. There is also an in-house library and a cafeteria on site, where you can experience daily interaction with Spanish students.
