About The Program
Known as the land of a thousand castles, Granada's history is a heritage of intersecting peoples, cultures, and religions. Here you can trace Islamic, Jewish, and Christian stories, art, and roots while advancing in your major. In program trips, you’ll explore an Arabic fortress and a gypsy cave community. In addition, a four-day trip will take you to Islamic Morocco in North Africa. During this visit you’ll benefit from cultural exchange with a local host family and Moroccan students. Since there are few tourists, residents rarely speak English making Granada ideal to practice and become fluent in Spanish.
Where you'll study
The University of Granada (UGR) is an academic and cultural nexus in southern Spain. It is the only university in the world with campuses on two continents: Europe and North Africa. Most popular for its highly touted programs in psychology and social sciences, UGR also has colleges devoted to the humanities, fine arts, law, political science, medicine, pharmacology, education, economics, and the natural sciences. Located in a beautiful Mediterranean area, it attracts thousands of students from around the world. The university also contributes to global development and works closely with organizations on hundreds of projects and patented products every year. Such connections expand your access to excellent research and internship opportunities while you’re in Spain. A city visited by Roman, Jewish, Arab, and Christian communities over the centuries, Granada’s architecture, culture, and social patterns are unusual and fascinating.
