- Program Description:
Trek Abroad Spain was created in order to offer students a more profound, personalized, and fulfilling study abroad experience through language study at the University of Granada, cultural immersion activities, weekend excursions, and daily life in a Spanish home. Our program focuses on experiential learning, second language acquisition, and intercultural exchange. We strive to take all the apprehension and guess work out of the study abroad process by offering students insightful advising pre-departure and a hands-on program on-site. Our programs are all-inclusive, meaning that tuition, housing, meals, laundry, excursions, weekly immersion activities, and insurance are included in the program cost.

- Setting Description:
Granada, an enchanting city rich in history and culture, has been inhabited since the 8th century. The Romans, Muslims, Jews, and Christians have all called Granada home. Each culture has left an indelible mark on the city, visible in its architecture, art, and even language. Granada’s crown jewel, The Alhambra Palace, stands watch over the city as a beacon of Moorish influence. In recent years it has become the most visited monument in Spain.
Today, Granada is one of Spain's most bohemian and youthful cities, full of innovative bars serving free tapas and hip clubs spinning tracks well into the early morning. Granada’s charm comes from its sidewalk culture where everyone seems to know each other, and the endless sunshine adds an air of happiness everywhere you turn. The University of Granada (UGR) is home to over 80,000 students and regularly ranks among Spain and Europe’s top universities for research, training, innovation, and cultural exchange.
