Program Description:

Alhambra in Granada, Spain

Arcos Learning Abroad: Summer in Spain


Granada is one of the most ancient and diverse cities in Spain. While in Granada, explore the narrow, cobblestone streets of the former Muslim quarter, the Albaicin, full of Moroccan tea houses and shops. Wander the passageways of the Alhambra Palace and enter the white-washed caves of the Gypsies to experience the passion of a Flamenco performance. Granada's historic streets are lined with Europe's top fashion stores. In addition to the mysteries and intrigue of the city, the Sierra Nevada Mountains provide an impressive backdrop to all that Granada has to offer.

Academics & Curriculum

Students on the Arcos Granada summer program may take courses either from the University of Granada or from Instituto Mediterráneo Sol (iNMSOL). Course options include Spanish language, healthcare, internships, and liberal arts electives taught in Spanish or English.

Accommodation & Meals

While in Granada, students live with host families. This immersive opportunity is perfect for students looking to learn about Spanish culture and improve their Spanish language abilities. Homestays are typically located an easy 20-25 minute walk from school in a safe, middle-class neighborhood. All meals are provided by the host family, giving students a unique opportunity to learn about Spanish food and culture. Wifi is available at home, and laundry is typically done once a week by the homestay.
