The University of Granada (UGR) is well-known for its language school, the Centro de Lenguas Modernas, a top destination for European exchange students. Established in 1531, UGR hosts more than 73,000 students each year at 28 schools spread around the city. UGR belongs to the Coimbra group of universities, composed of the oldest and most prestigious in Europe.

When in Granada, live as the locals do! Choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.

Program Structure

Each semester, you'll enroll in 4 elective courses. Elective courses meet for 45 contact hours/3 credits each. You may earn 12 credits (180 contact hours) per semester; if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 15-17 credits (225-240 contact hours in the spring semester and 260 in the fall semester). Academic year students may earn 28 credits (420 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 33 credits (up to 500 contact hours).

If you would like to take at least one elective in Spanish, you are required to take a Spanish early start language course and place at the intermediate language level or above. The early start option is optional if you are wanting to take all elective courses in English, although it is recommended for all students since it is designed to help you adjust to the university setting and to your daily life in Granada.

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.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability and Spanish language level. 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.

Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.

Morocco

Morocco

Deepen your understanding of Granada’s Arabic legacy by exploring three northern Moroccan cities: Tangier, Tetouan, and Chefchaouen. You’ll take a ferry across the Strait of Gibraltar to Tangier, where you’ll enjoy cous-cous at a women’s association, explore the souk (market) and old medina (old district), and ride camels. With a long, complex history, Tangier’s beauty and diverse culture has inspired artists and writers like Delacroix, Matisse, Jack Kerouac, Tennessee Williams, and Tangier native Mohamed Choukri. During the 19th and 20th centuries, the city also served as a global center for espionage and smuggling.

Next, you’ll tour Chefchaouen in the Rif Mountains. Founded by Moorish exiles from Spain, this city boasts blue-rinsed houses and buildings, a tradition left over from the Jewish population that once called Chefchaouen home.

Finally, we’ll visit the Martil Valley. Set among a string of orchards with the stunning Rif Mountains in the distance, you’ll find that the city of Tetouan deserves its reputation as a visual treasure. With its rich culture and history, Tetouan’s medina is a UNESCO World Heritage site that features a mix of mosques, shops, tanneries, and houses, all painted white with green doors and windows.

Seville

Seville

Your visit to Seville starts at the Reales Alcazares, a palace built by Arabs in the 14th century. You’ll explore the Barrio de Santa Cruz, once a Jewish neighborhood, before touring Seville’s cathedral, the world’s third largest and (allegedly) the final resting place of Christopher Columbus. Spend your free time relaxing at the Parque de Maria Luisa and the Plaza de España, one of the city’s most popular spots, with its fountains and mini-canals filled with rowboats. Take a stroll to the bank of the Gualdalquivir River to see the Tower of Gold and La Maestranza, one of the oldest bullrings in the world.

Ronda

Ronda

Ronda is a pueblo blanco (whitewashed town) sitting on the Tajo de Ronda, a 500-foot-deep gorge that divides the town. Here you’ll find monuments from the Roman, Arab, and Christian periods, like the hammam (Arab baths built in the 13th century), the Puente Nuevo (a stunning bridge that connects the old and the new towns), and one of Spain’s oldest and most beautiful bullrings. Authors Ernest Hemingway and Orson Welles spent time in Ronda and wrote about its beauty and traditions.

Cordoba

Cordoba

Cordoba was the capital of the Islamic caliphate in the Middle Ages. Once Europe’s most populous city and the intellectual center of the Western world, Jews, Muslims, and Christians lived peacefully together in Cordoba, and many philosophers, scientists, and artists emerged from the city. An understanding of Cordoba's cultural background enriches your exploration of its monuments, like the world-famous mosque with a cathedral built in the middle, known for its breathtaking rows of arches and columns. Enjoy a walk through the maze-like streets of the old Jewish quarter, filled with balconies decorated with colorful flowers, whitewashed patios, artisans’ workshops, and a synagogue dating to 1315.
