Fall 2018: Granada, Spain

Program Dates September 04, 2018 - December 21, 2018 (dates are tentative)

Program Overview All applicants must have a valid passport by application deadline

Study Spanish culture in Granada, one of the most beautiful cities in the Andalusia region of southern Spain. Granada's imposing Moorish palace, the Alhambra, overlooks the city and envelops it in history. A Mediterranean climate, romantic location, and excellent academic program make the Granada Semester an experience not to be missed. The host institution of this program is the Granada Institute of International Studies.

The Fall Semester in Granada combines multi-disciplinary course offerings with a variety of social and cultural activities. Spanish majors and minors, as well as students interested in art, history, business, international relations, political science and literature will find this program a particularly enriching experience.

You will have the chance to explore Spain, too. Once settled into Granada, weekend excursions will take you to the famous Costa del Sol, and the Andalusian cities of Cordoba and Seville. There is a trip to Madrid where you will have a chance to explore this unique city, converse with local residents, and participate in a group excursion to the nearby picturesque city of Toledo. The program also typically features trips to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, Alpujarras and Nerja, Cordoba and Sevilla. The resident director, Dr. Amalia Pulgarin, Director of GRIIS administers the program in Spain and serves as a liaison to the University of Delaware.

The Institute for Global Studies cooperates with the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures on the administration of this program.

At the end of the intensive Spanish course, all students will take the University of Granada’s Center for Modern Language’s Spanish language proficiency test.
