In December 2017, Sweet Briar discontinued its study abroad program in Spain, JYS in Seville, due to declining enrollment. The program, which had been running since 1983, gave more than 2,000 students the chance to live in a wonderful city, enhance their Spanish language skills and learn to be global citizens and leaders. Shuttering this wonderful program was a difficult decision to make. We’re incredibly appreciative of our collaboration with the University of Seville and we also recognize the amazing accomplishments of the JYS program, its students, its faculty and its staff.

All JYS alumni will always be welcomed as valued members of the Sweet Briar community and the College is committed to supporting you.
