CEA Global Campus inÂ
Global Campus in Seville Connecting Students to International Higher Education Because education shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all, we’ve developed a robust catalog of diverse study abroad program options to better meet the needs of today’s universities and their students. Our Global Education Network comprises three well-defined learning environments, each contributing distinct advantages that together offer college students greater depth of choice in study abroad programming and services.
The Global Partners
Our signature, purpose-built learning environment is designed to engage students directly in the local culture.
This new model of international higher learning reflects academic integration and collaboration with an international institution rooted in academic integrity.
We strategically choose these local institutions of higher learning to provide complementary, culturally immersive programs through direct enrollment with a local and/ or international student body.
Greater Control, Maximum Flexibility The Global Campus model was designed to meet university faculty and advisor needs by establishing greater control of curriculum and educational space abroad. We work with university faculty to design courses that fit your institutional goals, and continually assess our programs via direct feedback from the universities we serve. Our campus locations are selected for ease of access to the local community, both its historic and contemporary culture, and equipped with the technology students require today for academic success. The Global Campus model is characterized by: • Engagement with the local community through academic partnerships, shared programming, and service initiatives
• Curriculum designed around CEA’s “active learning” model to take learning beyond the classroom and into the city
• A focus on creative collaborations with U.S. colleges and universities
• Rigorous external oversight of faculty hiring and curriculum development
• U.S.-style academic calendar or specialized schedules
• Management by highly qualified and locally knowledgeable academic and administrative staff, trained in the best practices in education abroad
• Courses taught in English, as well as in the host language

School of Record Seville: Traditional Andalusian Culture With a population of less than one million, Seville offers a small-town feel compared to Madrid and Barcelona. Located in Southern Spain, Seville is considered the guardian of all that is traditional Andalusian culture. Seville has a very centralized historic district, the largest in Europe, which is very pedestrian friendly. Students can experience the Roman, Islamic and Christian remnants that embellish southern Spain: archaeological sites, Cathedrals, Mosques, Palaces, and Gardens. The Global Campus in Seville offers interactive curriculum designed to incorporate the local culture through class visits to the abovementioned landmarks, as well as attendance of cultural activities including soccer matches, bullfights, festivals and flamenco shows.
Global Campus courses are designed in conjunction with, approved and transcripted by the University of New Haven, which is accredited by the Commission on the Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (CIHE/ NEASC).

CEA’s Connections to the City CEA’s academic and professional network in Seville supports student integration into Seville culture through volunteering, extramural sports, and conversation exchanges. Housing options also encourage students to live “as locals do.” The Global Campus in Seville also offers a unique hybrid program with our local Partner institution, Pablo de Olavide University. Opportunities for class visits and student research projects are provided by key connections to local organizations, including: • The University Community Assistance Service (SACU) connects students with volunteer opportunities around Seville • Solidarios, a local nonprofit dedicated to helping homeless people
Seville. As part of his course, he takes students to the newly created Inquisition Museum, giving them an eerie, unique setting to observe the harsh reality of history. As a complement to their reading of the Treatise of Ibn Abdun, Mr. Avery also takes his class to the different locations mentioned in the work. At the Jewish Quarter, the students will not only learn about the events of 1391, but also hear firsthand how Spaniards today see their own past and heritage. In 2008, he received the ABD status after submitting a thesis, titled Urban Conflicts in the High Middle Ages, at the University of Pablo Olavide, where he has been teaching at the International Center since Spring 2009. His MA in Philosophy in Medieval History is from the University of St. Andrews.
• The Triana neighborhood, considered by many the birthplace of flamenco dance, offers students an upclose encounter with the twirling, colorful skirts, strumming guitars and passion that the gypsies brought to the southern region of Spain.
