The UNC Science in Sevilla Summer offers a great opportunity for students to take a science course in a foreign setting while perfecting their Spanish language skills. A UNC professor will serve as Professor-in-Residence and teach one science course.
UNC Science in Sevilla Summer – Course Offerings and Equivalencies
Students in the UNC Science in Sevilla – Summer program will take a science and a Spanish language course.
All participants will take a science class taught in English by a UNC professor (4 credits). Students will take a Spanish course taught by local Spanish instructors. Placement in the language class will depend on the students’ language level.
Classes will be held Monday-Friday. You are expected to attend every class, take all exams as scheduled by the professor, and turn in written work as required for the individual course.
NOTE: Traveling is an educational experience, but you are expected to schedule your traveling around your academic needs, not vice versa. You should plan to travel before the program begins or after the program has ended, not during the official program dates. If you are out of town and miss an exam or fail to turn in
written work, you will receive an “F” for that portion of your grade.
The science course will receive graded UNC credit. Please refer to the Credit Information on the UNC Study Abroad website for more information.
All grades (notas, calificaciones) in courses other than the science course will be based either on a number scale (1-10, 10 being the highest grade) or the words sobresaliente, notable, aprobado, suspenso. Students will need to receive a grade of 5 or aprobado to receive credit at UNC. The grades you earn will not count towards your GPA unless you receive a failing grade. Failing grades will be calculated into your UNC GPA as an F. Please refer to the credit information on the UNC Study Abroad website.
