Arcadia in Granada Summer Courses

Students at all levels of Spanish can be accommodated in the Granada summer program. All students will take at least one Intensive Spanish language course. You can choose a 5-credit language course or, if your Spanish is strong enough, you can choose a 3-credit language course with a 3-credit cultural course for a total of 6 credits. 

The program has two sessions, and you can choose to participate on one session for 5-6 credits, or both sessions for a total of 10-12 credits, depending on your course options.

You will be placed in an appropriate Spanish language class according to your proficiency level. Upon arrival in Granada, you will take a Spanish language proficiency exam and we will let you know your level of placement at Orientation.

  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
