About 
 
Are you a Liberal Arts major studying Spanish to satisfy your foreign language requirement? Join us in Spain this summer! Our program allows you to complete both SPAN 201 and 202 (6 credits) in five weeks. The trip begins with a cultural tour of Madrid, the capital of Spain, during which we will visit numerous sites, as we then head south to Granada, a vibrant city in the heart of Andalucía. In Granada, students will live with host families and take classes that cover the grammar, reading, listening, and conversation content of Spanish 201 and 202. Additional excursions to other locations throughout Andalucía will also be incorporated.
