UNC Spanish for Business in Sevilla

Are you interested in the Minor in Spanish for the Professions: Business track? Now you can work towards completing the Minor in Sevilla, Spain!

This faculty-led program will allow students to take courses towards their Minor in the Business track, visit local companies and meet local business people while getting to know the beautiful city of Sevilla in southern Spain. Students will have the option of spending most of their summer in Spain and get 12 credits by attending both the regular Sevilla summer session along with this UNC Spanish for the Professions program OR just going for this program and receive 6 credits.


Sevilla has been the destination of UNC students for years. Our partner center, CINECU, works closely with UNC to make sure courses satisfy UNC's high academic requirements. Students also benefit from the long-standing relationship and a great amount of support throughout their time in Sevilla.

Although Sevilla is a large city, it is made up of "barrios" and you will quickly get to know the areas you prefer. There are many areas to see, monuments and sites to visit; time will go by so quickly so take advantage of your time there to get to know Sevilla and the beautiful sites of Andalusia!

Courses & Credits

The language prerequisite is 4 semesters, completed by the start of the program. Students will be in classes with other program participants. All courses are taught in Spanish.

The program consists of TWO sessions and students may opt to ONLY enroll in the second session.

OPTION 1: Two sessions in Sevilla -Summer I and summer II
Students take SPAN 261 and an allied course in Sevilla during Summer I. The second session (Summer II) of the program starts at the end of June and UNC faculty teaches two courses: Spanish for Business (SPAN 320) and Spanish for Professional and Community Engagement (SPAN 329). Both of these courses count for a total of 6 UNC graded credit.

Students who wish to apply to this option should apply to the UNC in Sevilla summer program where they will be able to note they wish to apply for both summer sessions. *Please review budget information for both sessions on the UNC in Sevilla summer program brochure.* 

Students who decide to do both summer sessions will receive a total of 12 credits which will count towards the minor.

OPTION 2: One session in Sevilla, either Summer I or Summer II
Summer I: A student takes SPAN 261 and language/culture course that counts as the allied course requirement in the Spanish Minor for the Professions (3 TREQ  credits) in Sevilla and finishes  the Minor back on campus in the following semesters.
Summer II: A student takes SPAN 261 on the UNC-Chapel Hill campus (pre-requisite) and enrolls ONLY in the second session to take SPAN 320 and SPAN 329. The student will receive a total of 6 UNC graded credits which will count towards the minor.

Textbooks for both SPAN 320 and SPAN 329 should be purchased before departure: 
Span 320: Entre socios: Español para el mundo professional
Authors: Carmen Carney and Carlos Coria-Sánchez, McGraw Hill Publishers

Span 329:  Comunidades, Author: Annie Abbott, Prentice Hall Publishers

NOTE: If you are not taking Spanish at UNC but believe you have the equivalency required, please take the free UNC online language test (this is not the same as the placement test that you may have already taken). First, send your name, PID, and email to Abel Muñoz-Hermoso ( He will add you to Sakai where the test is set. You will then take the test at any time and will have 40 minutes in which to complete the test. Once you have completed the assessment test, send him the link to the Study Abroad language assessment form and he will complete that based on your results.

Students in Sevilla stay with host families, usually with another UNC roommate. Host families are carefully selected by our colleagues in Sevilla - some of them have been host families for years and know so many UNC students who have long graduated but yet they still manage to stay in touch even after the years have gone by. Students receive two meals a day and this is a wonderful opportunity to get to know Spanish cuisine. The señora only speaks Spanish and so this is a great opportunity to improve the spoken Spanish language in an every day setting.
