Program Description
Based in one of the most beautiful cities in the region of Andalusia in southern Spain, Granada, our advanced language immersion program will foster students' language and cultural awareness. The University of Granada's Centro de Leguas Modernas will host the summer program. Students have the opportunity to substantially improve their Spanish language communication skills, as well as their cultural awareness through their coursework and by living with host families.

The program includes two required courses SPAN306 and SPAN 308, along with the optional SPAN319 Internship in Spanish Healthcare.

- The course SPAN306 (Oral and Practical Expression) will focus on the development of oral communication and intercultural skills among participants.

- The course SPAN308 (Contemporary Spain II) will consolidate students familiarity with the history, traditions and current social realities of Spain. The course includes several educational field trips to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel, as well as day trips to medieval cities of Cordoba and Seville.

- The optional SPAN319 course will allow students in the Spanish for Healthcare Minor to complete their required practical experience in a healthcare setting.

All courses are taught by local instructors. No UD faculty member accompanies the students to Spain. On-site support is provided by the staff of our partner in Granada: GRIIS, the Granada Institute for International Studies.

Accommodations: Students will reside in private Spanish homes, in pairs. Bedding and linens are provided, as well as meals.

The Program Fee includes homestay with meals and laundry, transfer from airport in Granada to homestays, all group excursions and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare nor the return to the airport in Granada. 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.
