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.

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.

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 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.

The Program Fee includes housing for students in private Spanish homes in pairs with bedding and linens provided, three meals a day, laundry once a week, and international health insurance. All students are required to stay in program sponsored housing, independent housing arrangements are not allowed by UD or the program partners.

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.
