GREETINGS FROM SEVILLA! 

Last week, the Liberal Arts program reached its end. Only the six students who are taking direct enrollment courses at Universidad de Sevilla will remain a month longer in our city witnessing the splendour of spring in Sevilla.

LIFE IN SEVILLA

The life of our students these past weeks consisted of a combination of holidays (the Semana Santa and Feria de Abril breaks), the final classes, essays and exams. One of the most outstanding  projects is the teaching practicum of the Professional Teaching Development course. Julia Field, a student from Elon University, tells us her experience in this Digital Narrative Project that she made for the Intercultural Communication course.

Apart from classes, students also had time to get closer to the Spanish culture through fun activities such as kayaking the Guadalquivir river, cooking in a homestay, an olive oil and a craft beer tasting.

INTEREST GROUPS

At the end of April, the six Interest Groups (IGs) had their weekend trip. The IGs Tourism vs. Tourism, Urban Ecology and Flamenco travelled to Cádiz. There, students in the Tourism vs. Tourism IG participated in a photographic project through which they learned how the city transformed itself in the last century by comparing what they were actually seeing with photographs taken at the very same spots at downtown Cádiz in the beginning of the 20th century. Students in the Urban Ecology IG, together with an expert of the local Government, visited a Recylcling Center created by the Cadiz Town Hall. There, students learned more about pollution and recycling. Latly, students of the Flamenco IG visited the Studio Centro Flamenco de la Merced where they participated in a Flamenco dancing workshop.Cadiz

The Interest Groups Contemporary Art, Gastronomy Culture and Urban Music travelled to Málaga. There, students in the Contemporary Art IG visited the Contemporary Art Museum. Students in the Gastronomy Culture IG participated in a paella masterclass conducted by Víctor Mendicuti, a competitor of the third season of the Spanish Masterchef cooking show. Finally, the Urban Music IG students visited the recording studio Music Master where they had the opportunity to do their own recording.Gastro

And that’s all for the Spring 2018 semester. We hope that students left Sevilla with great memories and new perspectives.

All the best from Sevilla,
