I loved my host family. There is no experience like that of moving in with a new group of people who in no time become your family. The impact on my Spanish skills was immeasurable. My host mother told me that I am always invited back to my house in Granada anytime I'd like.
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.
