Program Description:

January Term in Seville, Spain


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 a spring semester program with Spanish Studies Abroad (SSA).

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.

SSA January term programs feature all-inclusive program-sponsored excursions which may include: 

  • a day trip to Córdoba,
  • walks to Plaza de España and Maria Luisa Park
  • visits to the Real Alcazar, Cathedral and Itálica, las Setas
  • the Museo de Bellas Artes


  • Classes meet Monday through Friday for 4 hours per day
  • Average class size: 10-12
  • 4 semester credits
  • All courses are taught in Spanish by highly qualified Spanish university professors with extensive experience in teaching American students.
  • Speaking partner program
