Studying abroad should not only be about what you can learn in the classroom, but what you can learn about the people through culture and conversation. Granada provided this opportunity through home stays and so many other cultural excursions.
This unique track will closely examine the profound impact of the Islamic culture on Granada and southern Spain. Students will enroll in both Spanish and Arabic language courses while completing elective coursework in Islamic culture and a personalized research project under the instruction of Professor Aurelio Ríos Rojas. Excursions with a special focus on Islamic culture will round out the semester. Students will earn 15 credit hours.
Excursions will include the Morocco Exchange and trips to Cordoba, Seville and Ronda with an emphasis on Islamic culture and history.
