Students with a 3.0 or higher in Susquehanna University Spanish courses may complete the course requirement for Spanish 201 at the Center for Cross Cultural Studies in Seville. More advanced students, including Spanish minors, may take 300-level courses. Students are immersed in all areas of culture during this program, including observing flamenco and eating Spanish cuisine. They also explore various religious and historical sites like the Cathedral and the Alcazar, and participate in two excursions to Cordoba and Palos de la Frontera.
