Program Overview

Situated at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada was the last Moorish city to be recaptured by the Christian monarchs in 1492. It’s most well known for the La Alhambra, the stunning Moorish palace on the hilltop, as well as its rich history. Every year, the Universidad de Granada welcomes more than 5,000 international students from all over the world who seek to learn more about Spanish culture and history in one of Spain’s oldest universities.

Students participating in the Hispanic Studies program through ISA are able to take Spanish language and culture courses at the Universidad de Granada, founded in 1531. Before the start of the semester, students begin the program with an intensive Spanish language course. During the semester, students will take one required Spanish language course and three to four more electives (taught in Spanish). Students seeking to apply to this program should have a high advanced language level or above, which will be confirmed via a placement test on-site.

To apply to this program, you must complete two main steps:

  1. Submit a UMD approval application - start by clicking “apply now” at the top of this page. This application allows UMD Education Abroad to approve your study abroad program selection so you may earn credit in a program outside of UMD.
    This application will require you to meet with your EA advisor, who will communicate important details related to participating in this program. If you do not complete this application by the stated deadline, you may not receive credit for your study abroad program and will lose your student status for the time you are not studying at UMD.
  2. Apply directly to the program provider. After receiving UMD approval, you should submit the program application directly to the program sponsor by their deadline. Your program sponsor will determine your official acceptance to a program. You must adhere to the provider's timeline, eligibility standards, and application requirements.

After being accepted to your program, your EA advisor will guide you through the course pre-approval process where you will determine which credits you will fulfill abroad.
