Learn one of the world’s most widely spoken languages and prepare to interact in the global community.

Spanish majors study abroad for a semester in a Spanish-speaking country. Students may also practice their language skills with a native-speaking language assistant on campus or with students in other parts of the world via real-time video conferencing.

Other program highlights include short-term travel courses in Spain or Mexico and the opportunity to get first-hand experience teaching languages.
