The Spanish major provides a balanced combination of courses designed to strengthen written and spoken language skills, courses that offer a solid background in history, society, and politics and courses that emphasize literary and cultural heritage. Students are strongly encouraged to study abroad for a summer or semester.
Spanish majors are strongly encouraged to enroll in a study abroad experience equivalent to 6-12 credits of work. Up to 3 study abroad courses will be counted as advanced courses within the Spanish major with a fourth used for a General Education requirement. Study abroad courses must be approved, in advance, by the Study Abroad Advisor.
