All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 8-11 weeks (2-3 months) to process a passport.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees and tuition.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
Program Description
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. Dr. Amalia Pulgarin, Director of GRIIS administers the program in Spain and serves as a liaison to the University of Delaware.

Spend about a month taking an intensive Spanish language course to help prepare you for taking courses in art, history, business, international relations, political science and literature in Spanish during the rest of the fall semester in Granada. Spanish majors and minors, as well as students interested in improving their Spanish language skills will find this program a particularly enriching experience.

Take part in a variety of social and cultural activities. The program typically features visits to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, Cathedral and Royal Chapel, and Albaicin. You will have the chance to explore Spain, too. Once settled into Granada, weekend excursions will take you to the the Andalusian cities of Cordoba and Seville among other destinations.
