CEA Spain Communication, Media, and Tourism
Since 1997, CEA has maintained one simple philosophy: To provide high-quality international academic programs and services. For you, that means support through each step of your study abroad experience, from the moment you apply to the day you return home again. Along the way, you’ll learn to adapt and communicate across cultures. You’ll earn credits toward graduation while gaining skills that enhance your employability. And you’ll discover more about yourself than you ever thought possible.
LocationsFor students with a focus on media and communication studies, this program is for you! CEA has partnered with EUSA University Center, an institution specialized in the field of communication, to offer a wide variety of courses in the fields of communication, media studies, and tourism management, as well as a range of electives in subjects like business, journalism, culture, and more. Courses are taught in English or Spanish; no Spanish language experience is necessary. Taking courses at the CEA Seville Center and our partner, EUSA University Center, allow you the flexibility to tailor your learning experience. Those attending EUSA are integrated into regular classes with local Spanish and other international students.
