Program Description:

January Term in Seville, Spain

Seville

Each January, Hollins students are offered the option of an intensive 3 1/2-week Spanish language experience at The Center for Cross-Cultural Study in Seville, Spain. This 3 1/2 week term is designed to be taken on its own or as preparation for the Spring Semester Program.

With its legacy of Spanish and Moorish art and architecture, Seville is one of Spain's most interesting and beautiful cities. The classrooms and administrative offices of the Center for Cross-Cultural Study are in the heart of the city, in two adjacent classical Sevillian mansions with wrought iron balconies, carved wooden doors, and walls lined with hand-painted, antique ceramic tiles.
