About the Program

Program Description

Drawing on Granada’s unique multicultural history and southern European location, this program examines the city's Islamic legacy, established during 800 years of Muslim rule. Activities and excursions bring lessons learned in class to life, from a guided visit to the Albayzín neighborhood, to strolling the stunning grounds of the Alhambra at sunset, to taking a field trip to Morocco. Improve your language skills in Spanish and Arabic language courses (taught in Spanish) and choose from a range of electives that bring Andalusian and Islamic culture and history to life, offered in English or Spanish. You may choose to jump start your Spanish language ability with our Early Start option.

Program Structure

Students at an advanced Spanish level or lower enroll in 2 Spanish language courses and 2-3 elective courses (taught in English and/or Spanish); students above this level enroll in 1 Spanish language course and 3-4 elective courses (taught in Spanish). If you are at a high-advanced Spanish level, you may opt to take integrated courses with Spaniards.

Courses meet for a total of 45 contact hours/12-15 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 225 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 16-20 credits (up to 305 contact hours).

Classes meet on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday; during the intensive language portion of the program, classes meet Monday-Friday. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled on Fridays.

Early Start: The Early Start course runs for 4 weeks/80 contacts hours in Fall and 3 weeks/60 contact hours in Spring; it’s designed to help you adjust to the university setting and prepare you for your courses. If you participate in the Early Start course you may earn an additional 4-5 semester credits (up to 80 contact hours).

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You'll take a language placement exam after you arrive in Granada. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
