Poetry in Sevilla




No prior poetry experience is required for this program in Sevilla! We'll read the Odyssey and a few other amazing books of poetry focused on travel. This class will deeply immerse you in travel and poetry, and you will never forget the experience. We'll live in Sevilla but will also visit Granada, Cordoba, Toledo, Segovia, and Madrid.

Your faculty leader, Dr. Poch, has lived in Sevilla numerous times, so he will be your best tour guide to this amazing city. You do not want to miss this opportunity: the food, the culture, and the duende! Texas Tech has our own Center and staff in Sevilla, so you will have no worries.

To get an idea of what the program is like, review of a video of a previous program Dr. Poch hosted in Sevilla.
