PASSPORT

We offer a B.A. in Spanish, a B.A. in Spanish Education & a M.A.T. in Spanish Education 

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE:
 

  • We are the only major that requires a study abroad component in order to graduate.  We offer our own in house study abroad program but many of our students have opted to study abroad using the study abroad office on campus and have then taken a semester or two in Spain or Argentina.
  • We believe that language acquisition does not only occur in the classroom.  We foster a Spanish Honor society: Sigma Delta Pi (Lambda Psi chapter), a Spanish Club, theatre and film gatherings, facebook groups for our study abroad and for networking as a post graduate.
