Field Study in Andalucía

New in Spring 2019: Spanish-language Field Study & Internship program

The Andalucía Field Study and Internship Program is centered on a full-time internship or research placement as the means for language immersion, cross-cultural learning, and a comparative grasp of a student’s own field. These goals are reached though a multi-faceted 18-week academic semester, offered in two themed Tracks (see below):

- Track I: History and Culture in Andalucía

- Track II: Contemporary Social/Economic Issues from the Andalucían Perspective

The semester begins with 6 weeks of intensive interdisciplinary courses, including a 1 week study tour to Morocco, followed by an 12-week full time internship in the student’s field. As part of the internship, students conduct field research, delving into an issue and producing a 30-page independent study. During the internship, students take one course, from a selected list corresponding to their track, at a local university.


Weeks 1-4 Coursework in preparation for active involvement in the professional life of an organization.
Week 5 An 8-day study tour of al-Ándalus themes – past and present – in Morocco (Tangiers, Tetouan, Chefchaouen, Fez, Rabat.) .
Week 6 Coursework and shopping period for direct-enroll course at the University of Seville
Weeks 7-18
The internship period
During this period students, working with their IFE research advisor, develop and complete an independent research project on a topic related to the work of their host organization. In addition they take a course related to their chosen area at the University of Sevilla.
