The UNC in Sevilla Summer program is designed for students with various academic interests. This six-week program provides students with the opportunity to study Spanish language, culture, history, and other subjects. The program is divided into advanced and intermediate levels, and students will be placed according to their level of Spanish. Classes are taken with other summer program students.
For students who have completed SPAN 204, SPAN 255, SPAN 261, or the equivalent. Students will choose one of the following courses depending on their background in Spanish.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have not completed Spanish 261 (Advanced Spanish in Context) at UNC, you are required to select SEVI 261 Spanish Language in Context.
This course uses literature, film, and culture as a basis for reviewing grammatical concepts, developing writing competency, and improving overall communication skills.
Prepares students to formulate and communicate critical analyses of literary works in various genres (theater, poetry, essay, narrative, and film), while placing the readings within a cultural context.
A general introduction to the artistic and cultural heritage of Spain.
For students who have completed SPAN 300 (Grammar and Structure of Spanish) or SPAN 301 (Introduction to Literary and Cultural Analysis) or the equivalent.
Each student will choose two classes from the following offerings:
A brief tour of the history of Spanish film from its origins through today. This course will analyze films to help students better understand Spanish Society and increase confidence in their ability to communicate (via reading, writing, speaking, and listening) in Spanish.
A study of the literature of Spain centering on representative authors and texts from various literary movements situated within their sociohistorical contexts.
Historical analysis and contextualization of daily occurrences in Spain. This course renders special attention to the Spanish political, social and economic situation, and the analysis of its international relations (mainly European Union, Arab countries, Latin American countries, and the U.S.A.). It also analyzes topics such as the relations between the Catholic Church and the State, Spanish nationalism, and immigration.
You will take two classes for a total of 6 credit hours.
You will register for classes before arriving in Sevilla. You will be allowed to change your schedule during the first two days of classes.
As is true for registration at your home college or university, it is the responsibility of each student to make sure that (s)he has officially registered all course changes with the program.
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.
All grades (notas, calificaciones) in courses 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.
