Granada provides a complex window into Spain’s unique historical symbiosis of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism. As a university town, Granada has numerous activities geared toward student interests, making new friends easy to find. This intensive Michigan program combines classes with U-M faculty and local Spanish professors at a local study center. Students have the option to take a class at the Universidad de Granada or partake in a 300-level internship. All 300 or 400-level credits earned can count toward a Spanish major or minor.
A carefully selected host family will be an integral part of each student’s experience living and studying in Granada. They will also participate in unique excursions to deepen their understanding of the rich cultural and political history of the area, including an overnight excursion to Seville, and a 5-day trip to Morocco. Students take at least one course with U-M Professor Juli Highfill, while other courses are taught by local professors.
