About the Program

Envision spending a summer abroad in the South of Spain, surrounded by the beauty of intercultural experience with art, architecture, and flamenco rhythm coursing through the rich land and cobblestone pathways; warm summer evenings after tapas aplenty and streets lined with vibrant orange trees. You’ll get this immersion and more with our Sustainable Development and Equitable Living Program at the crossroads of Europe and Africa. Based in Granada, but with academic connections and a field trip to Morocco, this program explores policies, mechanisms, and cultural paradigms of the topics at hand.
