Academic Program

TOTAL SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS

200-300 contact hours
12-20 U.S. semester credits

The Intensive Language Program is designed for beginning, intermediate, advanced and superior level students who want to quickly advance their Spanish skills over the course of one semester. There are no cultural electives offered within this program; students instead complete a series of intensive Spanish language courses. Students can expect to advance their Spanish a minimum of two levels during the semester. Each student’s language level is determined by a placement exam administered upon arrival by the University of Granada.

The fall semester early start and academic year early start programs include an intensive month, in September, comprising 80 contact hours of Spanish language. The month of May is included for Spring extended program students, also comprising 80 contact hours of Spanish language.

ACADEMIC YEAR OPTIONS

OPTION 1: Most academic year students ultimately choose to complete one semester of the Intensive Language Program and one semester the Spanish Language and Culture program OR the Hispanic Studies Program. Students who elect for this option will have a different program end date than the spring Intensive Language Program students (consult the dates and fees page or your Program Manager). As classes are not scheduled in January, students are free to travel or return home for the holidays. Housing in Granada during this period is not included in the program cost.

OPTION 2: Academic year students may choose to pursue two consecutive terms of intensive language study. In this option, students would take the fall semester, and return with a 3-week intensive language program in January, followed by a winter/spring term through March. Though the program would end sooner than the regular spring semester, students would still earn the same amount of credit. Housing in Granada between the fall and January terms is not included in the program cost.
