I will be studying abroad in Granada Spain!
I selected Spain as my destination not only because it is a Spanish speaking country but also because of its rich history, art, and cultural heritage. During my studies of the Spanish language I became increasingly intrigued with and fascinated by the Spanish culture, religion, history, and traditions. I selected the University of Granada because it offers an intensive Spanish studies program that will allow me to progress quickly in the mastering of the language. The program is aggressive and requires the completion of each course in a three week period. I believe this approach will be most effective in enabling me to progress more rapidly towards my goal of fluency in Spanish.
My ultimate educational goal is to obtain a Master's degree in International Business. I realize that learning new languages is an essential component to achieve this objective and that is why I chose to double major in Political Science and Spanish. One of the main reasons I have chosen this career path is because I love traveling abroad, meeting new and different people, and experiencing and learning about their culture and ways. I believe that the semester abroad program in Spain will be a positive enriching experience and will have lasting impact on my career and most importantly my life.
