Study Abroad

Study abroad is a rewarding experience in and of itself. It especially complements the course of study of LALS majors and minors. LALS students have enrolled in programs throughout Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain, immersing themselves in the culture of their host country.

Upon return, students are able to count some of their coursework abroad towards the requirements for the LALS major or minor. For non-Fordham programs, LALSI will allow up to four (4) courses for two semsters or three (3) courses for one semester taken during study abroad to count toward the major, and up to two (2) courses taken during study abroad to count toward the minor. For Fordham study abroad programs, LALSI will count all relevant courses taken toward the major or minor. If the student has already declared a LALS major or minor, these courses should be approved prior to going abroad by a LALS faculty advisor.

Summer in Granada, Spain
Granada, a World Heritage Site, is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. It was the hometown of the poet Federico García Lorca, and a center of flamenco culture. For four weeks, students will have the opportunity to live in this wondrous city, study the works of García Lorca and partake of several cultural visits as well as tours in Andalusia (Andalucía), the region where Granada is located. Space is limited, so interested students should contact Dr. Rafael Lamas as soon as possible.
