Program Overview

Program Description:
Semester at The Universidad de Granada

The Universidad de Granada was founded in 1526 by King Carlos V and is recognized as one of the top universities of Spain. During its centuries of existence, the Universidad de Granada has grown in social and cultural importance to become one of the major intellectual focal points in southern Spain. With over 70,000 students, almost one-fifth of Granada’s population, the university contributes to the youthful and dynamic atmosphere of the city. Students enroll in regular university courses. All classes are taught entirely in Spanish.

Setting Description:
Granada combines the special characteristics of the Islamic, Jewish, and Christian cultures in its architecture, music, dance, and food. The Alhambra, Spain’s most spectacular Moorish monument, reflects the Islamic influence of the centuries-long occupation of Spain. Granada’s narrow streets and fountains, the gypsy caves of Sacromonte, the flamenco, and plazas ringed by cafes evoke a longing for the romance and folklore of traditional Spanish life. Granada is within a one-hour drive of both the snowcapped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the tropical beaches of the Costa del Sol in southern Spain. Students going to Granada must secure housing on their own. Referrals can be made to accommodations in privately owned and operated residences for university students. Students may also make arrangements to rent or share apartments upon arrival. It is suggested that students arrive two weeks prior to the start of classes to make housing arrangements.
