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.
Though my time in Granada was just about five weeks in duration, I felt fully immersed in the Spanish lifestyle and culture. My Fordham student roommate and I worked together to adjust to the culinary, academic, religious, and household customs of our host 'mother.' The immersion proved challenging in the home, we spoke entirely in Spanish, a non-native language for myself. This experience opened my eyes to a new culture, and has sparked a curiosity about other cultures that I have yet to explore.
