Students may choose between the following Program Terms:

Hispanic Studies - Universidad de Granada

This program offers Spanish language courses as well as a variety of Hispanic Studies courses at the advanced level. Students will take a minimum of four courses and a maximum of five courses. All classes are taught by host university faculty at the Centro de Lenguas Modernas at the Universidad de Granada. Classmates are international students, the majority of whom are North American.

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 Intensive Language month + Semester option 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.

Students who have completed the following number of semesters/quarters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent typically place into the following language levels:

5-8 semesters (8-11 quarters) = High Advanced
6-9 semesters (9-13 quarters) = Superior
9+ semesters (13+ quarters) = High Superior

Intensive Spanish Language - Universidad de Granada

The trimester program can accommodate students at beginning, high beginning, low intermediate, intermediate, high intermediate, advanced, high advanced, and superior Spanish language levels. The program consists of three Spanish language modules, each covering the skills of writing, reading, speaking and listening. All students are required to take a Spanish language placement exam upon arrival in Granada. The exam will indicate each student's language proficiency level, and will determine the level of the first module in which the student is eligible to enroll. At the end of each module, students may advance to the next level, and will most likely complete 3 language levels (for example: low intermediate, intermediate, high intermediate) during the program. Please note, however, that level advancement is not automatic. Students will advance to the next level if their language acquisition skills demonstrate readiness and the CLM deems the advancement appropriate. Classmates are international students, the majority of whom are North American.
