Summer Academic Program

TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS

90 contact hours

6 credit hours

This program has a joint focus on language and culture, allowing the student who wants to study abroad in Granada the opportunity to develop and improve his/her linguistic skills while enjoying an introduction to the major topics of Spanish culture. In addition to the Spanish language class, classes are available in Spanish history, Spanish literature, history of Spanish art, Islamic culture, and more.

This summer, students participating in the Spanish Language & Culture study abroad program in Granada enroll in  90 contact hours per session. In general, 90 contact hours is considered to be equivalent to 6 U.S. semester credits. Please note that each U.S. university sets its own guidelines regarding how it accepts credit from abroad, so it is important that you discuss specific credit transfer policies with your home university.

Students must take a placement test upon arrival to show that they have an Intermediate level (European Framework level B1.1) of Spanish (or above). These courses are offered at three levels: Intermediate, Advanced and Superior (European Framework Levels B1 - C2). Generally speaking, if you have completed or placed out of 2 college-level Spanish courses, you should be entering at an intermediate level. Students who do not place high enough to participate in the Language and Culture program can switch to the Intensive Language Program.

TRANSCRIPTS

Transcripts are issued by the University of Granada upon completion of their program.
