The Experience:

Both programs will allow students to have a first-hand look at Spanish culture.  Programs include excursions to Madrid, Toledo, and Segovia to explore the rich, cultural, historic areas.  Other excursions, such as those to Andalucía, the southernmost part of Spain, will be determined at the beginning of the semester.  The fall program works well for students at the 300 or 400 level.  The spring program works best for students who are ready to take all classes at the advanced (400) level. All students prepare for the DELE (Spanish government-sponsored proficiency exam).
The spring program is longer than the fall program.

Accommodations:

Students will live with Spanish families, allowing full immersion into the culture and language.


Note: All students applying for the Granada Fall program are not allowed to make any summer plans to travel outside of the USA, because the visa process takes up to eight weeks to get passports back from the Spanish Council.  The passports are turned into the council in late May, so please do not make any travel plans for the summer to be out of the USA.
