Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

EARLY START SEMESTER 260-305 Contact Hours; 17-20 Semester Credits

SEMESTER 180-225 Contact Hours; 12-15 Semester Credits

Designed for students who wish to study abroad in Granada to acquire a deeper knowledge of Spanish language and culture, the Hispanic Studies program allows students to take an advanced Spanish language course along with several elective courses in Spanish. Students must have completed a minimum of five semesters of college-level Spanish or the equivalent. Upon arrival, students take a language placement test to verify that they are ready for classes at the high advanced or superior levels (European Framework levels B2.2, C1 and C2 respectively). Students testing below the high advanced level are transferred to the Language and Culture program and can choose from the courses listed for that program. Academic Year students who do not place high enough for the Hispanic Studies Program during the fall semester may switch to the Spanish Language and Culture Program for the fall and then move into the Hispanic Studies Program for the spring semester. Elective courses are conducted at an upper-division (300-400) level.

Semester credit hours earned vary based on the number of courses taken and passed. Students complete 4 or 5 classes per semester. Additional courses can be taken for an extra fee. Fall early start, spring, and year early start students have the option of taking 1-2 courses with Spaniards.

Students completing and passing the required courses for the entire academic year can opt to receive a Diploma de Estudios Hispánicos.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS

The Internship Program for Foreign Students (PPEE) is designed for university students and professionals interested in broadening their studies through professional internships across a wide range of institutions. These internships consist of field work, a group seminar, individual interviews with an internship tutor, and a written project and presentation at the end of the term. 45 contact hours (approximately 3 U.S. credits) of internship credit are included, though students can take up to 120 contact hours of internship credit for an additional fee of $500.

EARLY START OPTIONS FOR FALL AND ACADEMIC YEAR STUDENTS

Students who want to refresh their Spanish skills before starting their classes can participate in the fall and academic year early start programs, which include an intensive month of study in September for an additional 80 contact hours of Spanish language instruction.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students will receive a transcript from the Universidad de Granada upon completion of their program.
