About Granada

Sitting quietly against the backdrop of the Sierra Nevada, Granada is truly a real-life museum, and one of the jewels of Andalucía.
Home to the Alhambra, the Sacromonte and Albayzín quarters, and Federico García Lorca, Granada has preserved its multicultural identity and centuries of rich traditions

Program Overview

The study abroad program in Granada, Spain, allows students the opportunity to earn four credits for either SP 157 or SP 207 through instruction in Spanish language and a thematic course on poet and dramatist Federico García Lorca.

Instruction is given through the faculty of IES Abroad, our host program. Two levels of instruction will be offered:
  • One level for students who have completed SP 102 or SP 151
  • One level for students who have completed SP 152 or a more advanced course
Classes are held weekday mornings at the IES Abroad Granada Center.  Site visits include Albayzin and Sacromonte, Alhambra & Gernearlife, and Museo-Casa Natal Federico Garcia Lorca. 

The program also includes several site visits, as well as longer trips to Sevilla and Córdoba.


The academic component of the program enables students to grow as language learners within a structured environment. But the very best opportunity for students to immerse themselves in the Spanish language and foreign culture will happen through the homestay.

Students are placed with host families in carefully chosen private residences that have Internet access. Host families greet their students at the airport and help them learn the basics of getting around in Granada.

The families also provide two meals a day, offering ample opportunity for conversation and cultural exchange. The host families are experienced in introducing students from around the world to Granada and have worked extensively with IES. Vegetarian diets and other special needs are readily accommodated.
