The Granada Study Abroad Program in Spain is a spring semester program at the University of Granada offered in conjunction with the " Centro de Lenguas Modernas ", a division of the University of Granada located in an attractive downtown building. All of the facilities of the University are available to our students. Students from all over the world study in the "Centro" program and Spanish is therefore the common language.
Granada, an Andalusian city located in southern Spain, at the foot of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, less than an hour away from the Mediterranean Sea and crowned by the Alhambra, a special beauty and a visit here will be an unforgettable experience for all of those who decide to make the journey. This internationally renowned city boasts a rich Arab and Christian past as well as its own vibrant present with a friendly inviting atmosphere. A member of the UNH faculty will be in residence in Granada to assist students, administer the program, and teach one course.
The FALL Granada study abroad program is geared toward students at the beginner/intermediate Spanish level. The SPRING program is open to students who have successfully completed at least Spanish 631 or its equivalent and have a cumulative GPA of 2.5, and who will have at least sophomore standing in the year of participation. Applicants from institutions other than UNH are also welcome to apply.
The application deadline for the spring 2013 program is October 15, 2013.
