Program Design

The 2018 Spain Information Sheet provides program details.  This experience is based at Texas Tech University's Center in Seville, but students are enrolled in OU credit hours and are taught by an OU instructor on site.  The staff at the Center organize all the excursions and will also assist Professor Jarvis-Denny with any student issues or emergencies during the program.  Classes meet every week day, but some excursions may also be on weekdays.  Students completing this program should be ready for the next level of Spanish on campus in Norman, if they choose to continue in the language.


Participants live with Spanish host families that have been screened and carefully selected by the Texas Tech Center staff.  Three meals a day and the ability to do two loads of laundry per week are provided by the families, and those costs are part of the program fee.  The number of OU students housed with any one family varies depending on the number of participants and the gender distribution of the students.  Part of the arrival orientation includes suggestions and guidelines for living with a host family while on study abroad.

Money Matters

It is each applicant's responsibility to share information about costs with family members who need to know and understand how the payment system works. The 2018 Spain Estimated Budget will help students compare programs and plan for study abroad. It will be linked here by October 15, 2017.  Costs are subject to change based on the currency exchange rate and the number of participants.  All Arts and Sciences study abroad programs require a $200 non-refundable deposit at the time of application.  That is considered the first program payment and is deducted from the program fee.  It is not an application fee.

Except for summer tuition and fees billed through the Bursar’s Office, all payments for this program are due before the end of the Spring 2018 semester.

There are a number of scholarships available for study abroad students.  A few opportunities are listed below to get you started.

Get Started

When applications are open, students can click on the Apply Now button at the top or bottom of this brochure.  Applicants must schedule an appointment with Karen Elmore, Director of Arts and Sciences International Programs, and attend a Study Abroad 101 information session to learn the basics about study abroad.  Both an advising appointment and attendance at Study Abroad 101 are required.
