Semester in Spain Program (for Spanish Minors)

Program Overview

George Fox University students may apply to study in Spain for one semester through a cooperative agreement with Trinity Christian College of Palos Heights, Ill. The Semester in Spain Program is designed primarily for students minoring in Spanish.

Students study in Seville, Spain, and live in local homes while attending classes with students from Trinity and other colleges.

Course Content

A Preliminary Course Request Form is sent to each student prior to his or her departure for Spain. You choose your courses based on your previous Spanish language course work, with the approval of your advisor or the foreign language faculty.

Besides Spanish language courses, students can take courses in Spanish history, art, and culture. All courses are in Spanish.


Various activities and outings, such as concerts, theater productions, picnics, trips to the beach, sporting events, etc. will be offered throughout the semester. These activities are optional. Some activities will require only a nominal fee; some will be more expensive.


You will live in Spanish homes in Seville. Your Spanish family may consist of a couple or a single woman, with or without children. You will be living with one, two, or sometimes three roommates from the Semester In Spain Program, depending on the accommodations available.

If you participate in the program along with a friend you may request to live together in the same home assignment. Those requests are honored as much as possible.

Program Fees & Eligibility

You pay your regular George Fox tuition and room and board and continue to receive all of your financial aid. Due to the high cost of some programs, an additional fee may be charged.
