About the Program

The Texas Tech University Center in Sevilla is located in southern Spain in the region known as Andalucia. Sevilla has over 700,000 inhabitants and is located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River which can be navigated all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Tartessians and Romans first settled the area prior to 200 B.C. and remnants of those empires as well as Moorish occupation are prevalent in structures around town. Several notable artists - Velazquez, Murillo, Valdes Leal and Martinez Montañés - left their mark on Sevilla as well. Sevilla is a modern, dynamic city as well as boasting typical Andalusian charm.

The Texas Tech University Center in Sevilla is located along the perimeter of the downtown area and has wireless as well as high speed ADSL capability. An extensive travel library is available for students to plan the weekend excursions around Europe. A research library has collections of history, art, architecture, and Spanish language. An informal paperback exchange library is located on site as well for students' leisure reading needs.

Spain - Your Home Away From Home

Spain is located in southern Europe and is home to a myriad of cultures and traditions as diverse as the climates and foods. The country is bordered on three sides by water and offers picturesque beaches, towns perched clinging to rocky hillsides and a forum for world class water sports. Soccer is the king passion and regularly boasts world championship teams. Artists have found inspiration for painting, sculpting and writing masterpieces for centuries. The landscape lends itself to photography and pure enjoyment of the outdoors. National parks are sprinkled through the country and leisure activities abound.

As students arrive in Sevilla, Spain, the program begins with an in-country orientation which includes walking tours of the city and presentations by the Texas Tech Sevilla Center Director and staff regarding housing, communication, safety, public transportation, and cultural issues. At the end of the in-country orientation host families meet students to take them to settle in to their new environment. Group excursions are woven into the curriculum throughout the semester. Free weekends scattered throughout the semester allow students to take advantage of further travel as they wish.

Host Family

Living with a host family is an integral part of the program and can be a very rewarding experience. Families not only provide full room and board and laundry services, but they also provide an opportunity to practice Spanish extensively outside of class as well as offer students a unique insider's glimpse into Spanish culture not easily replicated by any other experience. Spanish host families are carefully screened and monitored by the on-site staff. During orientation and through orientation materials, students are given guidelines to help them successfully integrate with their host families.
