Program Description:

UGA- Franklin- UGA en España, Cadiz Summer

The UGA en Espana, Cádiz program focuses on the Spanish language and culture.  Students take two SPAN courses (6 academic credits) taught on the campus of the University of Cádiz by UCA faculty.  Courses offered include intermediate and advanced conversation and composition, topics in Spanish culture, and introduction to Hispanic Linguistics.  

The program features a homestay in local homes with full board and weekly laundry.  Activities include a weekend trip to Granada to visit the world-famous Alhambra.  Participants in this program also visit what are among the most storied and historically important of the cities of Andalusia—Sevilla, Córdoba, and Granada—and Jerez and Tarifa are right around the corner.  So consider spending six weeks in the city that Greeks say was founded by Hercules!

Program Location 

Cádiz is among the oldest continuously inhabited cities of Western Europe. Much of its ancient feel and charm is still present with the casco antiguo, a warren of winding stone streets joining an assortment of unexpected plazas. 

A leisurely walk in any direction will bring you to the sea wall that bounds the old city, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.  Wide beaches span large sections of this ‘almost island’, while rocks filled with tide pools dominate others.  Off the Caleta beach, a lighthouse marks the San Sebastián fortress at the end of a long, narrow peninsula and makes for a pleasant stroll out into the harbor.

Program Reviews:
Summer 2017 Participant
I loved everything about this program. Living in Spain with a host family was a life-changing experience for me and I loved speaking Spanish everyday. If you decide to go on this trip, take advantage of all opportunities to travel, speak spanish, and explore the culture because you'll miss it when its over.

Summer 2017 Participant
LOVED IT, LIFE CHANGING. I am now considering taking a gap year/doing grad school/moving to Spain.

Summer 2017 Participant
Do it. Live it. Cádiz.

I want to travel much more and become fluent in the Spanish language completely! This was my head-start to accomplishing this. Also, I realize that I would not mind working internationally in my future career.
