Program Overview

Program Description:
Improve your knowledge of España and castellano while living "the good life" in Seville! With its strategic position just miles from North Africa, Southern Spain has long been at the crossroads of Moorish (Islamic) and European cultures. The emerging, vibrant mix—nowhere more evident than in its capital city of Seville—provides us with some of the most uniquely “Spanish” customs, such as flamenco and bullfighting. St. John’s new “Discover Spain: Seville Fall Semester” program offers you an extraordinary opportunity to experience a country where languages, architectural styles, peoples, and customs mingle!

St. John's courses abroad often focus on experiential learning, whether through site visits, Academic Service-Learning, or city-based projects. It’s just another way to help you make the most of your experience, focusing your time on the amazing places where you’ll live and study.No matter the subject, our courses offer you local context—firmly embedded in the host city wherever possible—for understanding the global framework of each discipline. Many class also include an academic service learning component. Helping to change lives is an inspiring experience – one that sets studying abroad with St. John’s apart. In the past year, our students committed nearly 5,000 hours to service sites worldwide. You’ll make a real difference through activities like teaching English to local students, serving in soup kitchens and mentoring school children. Best of all, volunteering lets you actively engage the people in your new host city.

Start off your time in Seville through a guided river cruise on the Guadalquivir that ends with a walking tour—and a tour of different local foods. In addition, you’ll explore the Plaza de España (the site of the World’s Fair), the Museo de Bellas Artes, and one of the true treasures of Moorish Spain, the Alcazar. Want to go further afield? Explore the natural beauty of the Aracenas caves (Google an image—you’ll be amazed), visit the La Calera bull ranch, or travel with the staff to a beach town in Portugal.
Setting Description:

The residence features private bathrooms, WiFi, and a cafeteria—and many rooms have shared balconies.
