The Spanish major has two concentrations:
Language & Culture
Spanish for Health Professions (new for fall 2021)
The Spanish major begins with a foundation of linguistic and intercultural experiences, including cornerstone faculty-led May Term immersions in Costa Rica and Denver, Colorado, and premier study abroad semester programs in Spain and Latin America.
Students in the Language & Culture concentration choose from advanced electives in culture and linguistics, while Spanish for Health Professions students hone their professional Spanish skills in courses such as translation/interpretation and Spanish for medical professions. Spanish for Health Professions students also have the opportunity to complete a medical Spanish study abroad program that includes clinical internship experiences.
Students are shaped by international experiences designed to increase language proficiency and immerse you in another culture. In-depth study of another culture and living abroad for an extended period of time will give you insight into how other cultures view the world, as well as a better understanding of American culture.
