This program is closed.

Program Overview Study Spanish at the Universidad de 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. The Universidad de Granada, founded in the 16th century, will host the winter program.

This program allows students to improve the language communication and comprehension skills as they study in the classroom and at the same time are exposed to every day life in the city and through their interaction with host families.

Upon its arrival in Spain, the Delaware group spends several days touring in and around the bustling capital city of Madrid, visiting the famous Palacio Real and the Prado museum. During the course of the program, weekends are scheduled in the Andalusian cities of Cordoba and Seville. The group also typically takes day-trips to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, Cathedral,Royal Chapel, the Albaicin (narrow winding streets of Medieval Moorish past) and La Alcaiceria (home of the Great Bazaar of Granada).

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

As part of the required SPAN208 Spanish Culture course the group typically takes several field trips to sites in and around Granada, such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral and the Royal Chapel.
