Study in Seville: The Beginning of an Adventure

Program Description

Texas Tech University is offering a unique opportunity for students to live, learn, travel and enjoy the life, culture, and Spanish language during long semesters, or during the summer program, in Sevilla. Spanish course credit may be earned at the lower-level (first and second year), upper level (third and fourth year), and at the 5000-level (or graduate). The program is directed and the courses taught by Texas Tech University Spanish professors.

More information is available from the Study Abroad website.


The program is based in Sevilla, España, a beautiful city in Andalucia in southern Spain. It is a vibrant, dynamic city with many things to see and do. The location of Sevilla provides convenient access for our excursions to Granada, Cordoba, Madrid, Toledo and the beaches of the Costa del Sol.


The long-semester program is open to TTU students who wish to complete respective course work. The summer program is open to undergraduate students from any accredited United States college or university, and to graduate students who are working on their M.A. or Ph.D. degrees. Participants will enroll as Texas Tech University students. Enrollment is limited in the various sessions, depending on the season.


All students will be housed in Sevilla with Texas Tech approved Spanish families. Families are carefully selected and screened so as to provide students with a positive living and cultural experience.


A number of scholarships are available through the Office of International Affairs on campus. These scholarships are for all Texas Tech students, and generally run from $300-$1200.

Additional scholarships should be explored with the TTU Scholarship Office.
