The Center, housed in two connected classical Sevillan mansions surrounded by historic and artistic monuments in the heart of the city’s commercial and social center, provides a unique learning experience for students in Sevilla, Spain.

The Center’s philosophy encourages students to set aside American friendships temporarily and develop Spanish ones, in order to become more a part of the culture of Sevilla.
In addition to its programs in Spain, the Center also offers semester and short-term programs in Cuba. Students take classes from native Cuban faculty at the University of La Habana, and participate in an array of cultural activities and study trips designed to encourage direct interaction with the Cuban people.
