Program Description:
UTK Spanish Language Summer Program in Santander

Program Description

Immerse yourself in a classic Spanish setting for the summer. Seville is the capital of the Andalusia region located in the south of the country. The population is over 700,000 inhabitants, making it the 4th largest city in Spain and a hub for history, business, language and culture. Seville is known for being an intensely vibrant and extraordinarily beautiful city, steeped in both ancient and modern history. Students must experience an authentic flamenco show at a tablao in the heart of the city - this is the birthplace of the fiery dance, after all - and they will not want to miss dramatic monuments, like the Catedral and the Alcazar!

Program Excursions


Granada (2-Night Hotel Stay)

Another historic and yet unique Spanish city, located at the point where four rivers meet the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Exciting opportunities await:

  • walking tour of Granada
  • explore the Alhambra, the infamous Moorish palace and fortress complex. Appreciate the architecture and attention to detail of some of the finest Islamic buildings in Europe
  • visit the Royal Chapel of Granada, the burial site of King Ferdinand of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castile
  • take in Granada's Cathedral, which is known for being the first Renaissance church in Spain


Students will enjoy time to explore the restored remains of a Roman bridge that allows them to cross the Guadalquivir river and view the large Mosque-Cathedral. Cordoba was once home to populations of Romans, Muslims, Christians and Jews, often in overlapping combinations. Each group left visible imprints and influences on the city.


Students will participate in a walking tour to learn about this important port city, which is one of the oldest in Europe. Free time for lunch and relaxation on the beach are included in the fun.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Be in good standing at UT with a 2.0 GPA or higher
  • Meet the pre-requisite for Spanish 223 (Spanish 112, 123, or 150).

Academic Credit

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive 6 UTK credits for Spanish 223: Intensive Intermediate Spanish (this is a combination of Spanish 211 and Spanish 212). Classes will be held Monday through Friday (~4 hours/day).

Program Housing

Accommodations are included in the program fee.

In Seville, students will live in double rooms in a Spanish family's home. All 3 meals on non-excursion days are provided as well as laundry service once per week while living with host families. Hotel stays during overnight trips are included.
