Students interested in completing an internship internationally have an opportunity to do so in Seville, Spain. This internship offers the experience to gain “real-world” professional skills as well as immerse in the local culture. All fields of study are welcome to apply and experience an internship in these settings.

In Seville, students will engage in a 7-week program with eight weeks of an internship and two weeks of intensive language courses prior to participation with Spanish Studies Abroad.

Students must have successfully completed at least one semester of an advanced Spanish course with a 3.0 in their Spanish coursework (if GPA is not met, students must obtain a STRONG faculty recommendation).

Students are placed in internship areas that align with their interests and reside with host families. Not only will students receive pertinent, relevant professional experience but they will also hone their language and intercultural skills.

Internships abroad are intended to help students expand their intercultural knowledge as well as specific industry knowledge. Students are also encouraged to utilize their internship abroad experience to inform their career choices and paths. Students will participate in an internship 32 hours per week and must also enroll in the Intensive Internship course offered by Spanish Studies Abroad, which complements the internship, as well as Spanish for the Working Environment, an intensive language course taken during the first two weeks in Seville. Students will receive up to 3 credits for the internship and 1 credit for the intensive language course. Students MUST contact their academic department regarding receiving credit for the internship in the Spring semester, well in advance of departing for Seville.
