Spanish majors enroll in engaging courses in language, literature, and linguistics. Majors are encouraged to incorporate study abroad into their plan of study, whether students are abroad for a week, semester, or academic year. A minor is also offered in Portuguese, which allows students the opportunity to combine Portuguese with their study of Spanish in interesting ways. Spanish faculty have outstanding credentials and show a strong commitment to both their research and teaching.
