Program Notes
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 6-8 weeks (2 months) to process a passport.

Traveling and studying abroad at this time poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad must be prepared to adapt to evolving situations 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 which are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and world events 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.
Program Description

This study abroad winter 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 Andalucía, 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. January offers an amazing calendar of cultural events and a chance to experience the very vibrant life of Granada. The program includes educational excursions to Andalusian cities like Córdoba 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, some meals, academic and cultural excursions, and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare to/from Spain, nor airport transfers within the U.S. 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.

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.
