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.

Madison Brooke Lupo, Summer 2017 Participant
Studying abroad was an irreplaceable experience. I'll never forget this trip for the rest of my life.

Summer 2017 Participant
This was the best experience of my life so far, and it can be yours too.

Summer 2017 Participant
I felt they cared about our personal issues as well as wanting us to do well in the classes.

I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this experience and would highly reccommend this program to any student hoping to better their language speaking abilities. I personally saw substantial growth in my Spanish skills and confidence and continue to communicate with my host family on a weekly basis, allowing continual growth. Additionally, I met so many new friends on my program and together we were able to travel and explore amazing new cities and diverse cultures. Overall, this program allowed me to have the summer of my dreams traveling while improving my education and Spanish.
