Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad - Sevilla


Study abroad on a Harvard-affiliated program that enrolls you directly in regular university courses at the Universidad de Seville along with regularly enrolled Spanish university students. The Consortium for Advanced Studies Abroad - Sevilla (CASA-Sevilla), administered by Cornell University, allows undergraduate students from Consortium schools (Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, Northwestern University, University of Pennsylvania, Trinity College Dublin, University of Melbourne, and Vanderbilt University) with advanced Spanish language proficiency to study and live with Spaniards. At the CASA-Sevilla Center, core and content courses are offered to support, guide, and enhance the students’ coursework at the Spanish universities. These Consortium courses are taught by the Faculty-in-Residence, and the Resident Director. The hallmark of each CASA program is the Prosminar, and the one in Seville does not disappoint. Titled Más Allá de los Estereotipos, or Beyond the Stereotypes, CASA-Sevilla students are engaged in the local Sevillana culture, through volunteering at one of the NGO's in the city, or teaching English to children. The program is delivered in Spanish, so students who have completed Spanish 40, or equivalent, are eligible to apply.
