This month-long program based at University of Granada offers Spanish language and upper-level Spanish literature and culture courses. Students will receive instruction at their appropriate level of linguistic competence, and will attend a number of cultural visits and one-day trips in Andalusia, including Córdoba and Sevilla. Classes will meet four hours per day, five days a week for a total of 80 hours. The relevant course taken in Granada will be substituted for the correspondent level of Spanish language at Fordham. The program is based at the University of Granada. The city of Granada, a recognized World Heritage Site by UNESCO, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It is also the hometown of Federico García Lorca and a center of flamenco culture. The Alhambra Palace, the Sacromonte and Albacín neighborhoods, the Cathedral, and the numerous Baroque churches of the city are testimonies of a rich past, which continues to be alive through its vibrant university community.
What suggestions or advice would you give to a prospective study abroad student?
I would encourage students studying abroad to speak the language that they are studying even when talking with other students from Fordham and to participate in intercambio activities whenever possible. I would also recommend visiting other museums and cultural sites in the city that are not included on the official itinerary for the program.
