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 impact has your study abroad experience had on your life and studies?
This study abroad experience has allowed me to see a historic old city where people seem to live more simply than they do in many American cities and suburbs. I was amazed by the art and architecture and marveled at the skill and dedication required to complete even the simplest buildings and churches throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. This visit to Granada has strengthened my interest in History and Art History and made me feel more certain that this is what I want to study.
