This program is a faculty-led summer program that will allow students to complete their Spanish for the Professions Minor in the Business Track, visit local companies, and meet business people while experiencing to the fullest the beautiful city of Sevilla in Southern Spain.
Students interested in this program have two options to complete the Spanish for the Professions Business Minor:
This course uses literature, film, and culture as a basis for reviewing grammatical concepts, developing writing competency, and improving overall communication skills.
A general introduction to the political and cultural history of Spain.
A brief tour of the history of Spanish film from its origins through today. This course will analyze films in order to help students better understand Spanish Society and increase confidence in their ability to communicate (via reading, writing, speaking, and listening) in Spanish.
Taught by a UNC professor, students receive UNC graded credit for the course; the grade received in this course WILL affect the student’s UNC GPA.
Prerequisite, SPAN 320, 321, 322, 323, or 327. Eight-semester capstone course applying skills in Spanish language and cultures to professional and community contexts. Assignments include professional documents, community service work and projects, and a research project. Open only to students in the minor in Spanish for the professions.
Visits to local companies and interacting with local business people are important components of the program. SPAN 320 and SPAN 329 include three site visits to local businesses in Sevilla designed to help students experience the environment and meet the people in Spanish companies.
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. You should also be aware that: 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 in the process miss an exam or fail to turn in written work, you will receive an “F” for that portion of your grade.
The SPAN 329 course will receive graded UNC credit. Please refer to the Credit Information Sheet on the UNC Study Abroad website for more information.
All grades (notas, calificaciones) in courses other than SPAN 329 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.
