Academic Information

Chapman University maintains a record of the courses that previous study abroad students have taken, and the equivalent Chapman credit that was granted for each course. To view the course equivalencies for this program, click “Sample Pre-Approved Courses” at the top of each program brochure page. Please note that Sample Pre-Approved Courses are courses that have been previously requested by a Chapman student for credit. It is not a comprehensive list of all courses available at the institution.

You may view the entire course catalog for this program by following these instructions:

  1. Go to the CEA Seville - Arts & Sciences website.
  2. Choose the correct semester and year next to “Available Sessions” at the top left (examples: “Spring 2019 Semester CEA & UPO Hybrid” or “Spring 2019 Semester CEA & USS Hybrid”). You can choose courses from the USS or UPO option. See below for differences at these two universities.
  3. Click on the “Course Listing” tab.
  4. To expand and view all of the courses at once, click on “View All” to the right of the course category headings.

Students are encouraged to request additional or revised equivalencies during the pre-departure process, which will be evaluated by the appropriate academic units on campus.

Students on the CEA Seville, Spain - Arts and Sciences Program will take some courses at the CEA Seville Center and some courses at either the University of Seville (USS) or Pablo de Olavide University (UPO). Please see below for differences about these two local universities:

  • USS: Students interested in multi-disciplined-area studies tend to be attracted to this program. USS is located close walking distance to the CEA Seville Center. This program does not dedicate resources to connecting study abroad students with locals.
  • UPO: UPO offers more focused-studies program. UPO provides a campus feel for students but does require a commute on the metro with an extra transportation expense (a 15-minute ride), as it is located outside the city center. UPO strives to provide an excellent program enriched by an emphasis on meeting local students.
