Program Description
This study abroad summer program focuses on linguistic and cultural immersion, and it is designed for students who are highly motivated to improve their Spanish language proficiency. Applicants must have at least four years of Spanish in High School, or Span106/107, or Span200/201.

This program is based in Granada, one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain. Surrounded by Spain's mightiest mountain range, the Sierra Nevada, and by fertile agricultural plains, Granada has spectacular natural beauty. You'll study the language, culture and history of Spain in the shadow of Granada's most famous landmark - the Alhambra, the Moorish fortress-palace that overlooks the city. You will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in Granada during one of the most exciting times of the year. June and early July offer an amazing calendar of cultural events and a chance to experience the very vibrant life of Granada, including the Corpus Christi Fair, the International Festival of Music and Dance, and the Festival of the Albaycin, among others.

The Universidad de Granada, founded in the 16th century, will host this Summer program. The program includes educational excursions to Andalusian cities like Cordoba and Seville. The group will also visit sites in Granada, such as the Alhambra, Generalife, Royal chapel, Cathedral and the Albaycin.

Accommodations: Students will stay in private Spanish homes in pairs. Bedding and linens are provided, as well as all three meals and laundry once a week.

The Program Fee includes homestay with meals, all group excursions and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare. The program officially begins when students arrive in Granada. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.

Homestays and classrooms will not have air conditioning and students walk on average about 20 minutes to class.
