Semester / Trimester

Hispanic Studies -Universidad de Granada

Open to students at the advanced language level and above, you will refine your Spanish language abilities while learning about the history and culture of the Spanish-speaking world in this immersive program. You will enroll one Spanish language course of your choosing plus three or four content courses, instructed entirely in Spanish. Classmates are international students, the majority of whom are from the U.S. All courses are taught by Universidad de Granada faculty at the Centro de Lenguas Modernas.

What is the difference between the A and B programs?

  • The A program includes a month-long intensive Spanish language course. Fall and Year students who choose this option will start with an 80 hour intensive Spanish course, and Spring students will start with a 60 hour intensive Spanish course.
  • The B program does not include the month-long intensive Spanish language course. Students will be taking normally scheduled semester long courses.

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 Student Visa & Embassy page for more information. Applying for a visa could require out of state travel.


Minimum GPA

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.
