About The Program

Discover a true international experience in the college town of Granada. Exchange students are drawn to the University of Granada to experience life in this beautiful city known for its delicious tapas and vibrant murals. Develop your Spanish language skills while exploring the blend of Andalusian and Moroccan cultures. A multi-day trip to Morocco in North Africa uncovers the cultural influences of a city with both Latin and Arab ancestors. Outside of class, visit the Alhambra, a fortress with awe-inspiring palaces built in the 13th century or enjoy Granada’s natural beauty with a dip in natural hot springs, hike in the mountains, or day of sunbathing on the beach.
