This program offers Spanish language courses as well as a variety of Hispanic Studies courses at the high advanced level. Students will enroll in one required Spanish language courses at their respective language level and three to four additional electives taught in Spanish. Classmates are international students, the majority of whom are North American. All classes are taught by host university faculty at the Centro de Lenguas Modernas at the University of Granada.
What is the difference between the A and B programs?
If the placement exam indicates that the student's language level is too low for this program (Advanced Language Level or lower), the students will be required to switch to the Spanish Language, Culture and Electives program.Please note that a student visa is required for programs over 90 days. Please reference the page for more information. Applying for a visa could require out of state travel.
Students must have a minimum grade point average of 2.50.
Minimum Admissions Prerequisites
For high advanced level Spanish speakers, and higher. Students must have completed a MINIMUM of 5 semesters, 8 quarters, or the equivalent of college-level Spanish.
IMPORTANT: Enrollment in the Hispanic Studies semester program is strictly determined by the results of an on-site placement exam administered by the University of Granada. We strongly suggest that students whose home universities require them to place into Hispanic Studies sign up for Fall/Spring A programs (rather than the equivalent B programs) so that, by taking a month-long intensive Spanish module before the start of semester classes, they may increase the likelihood of being eligible for the classes they need.
Course placement is ALWAYS based on a placement exam administered on-site.
