About this program

Spanish Studies

The Spanish Studies Program offers a full range of courses in the language, literature, and culture of the Spanish-speaking world, including Spain, Spanish America, and the Latinx community of the United States.

The Spanish Studies Program offers a full range of courses in the language, literature, and culture of the Spanish-speaking world, including Spain, Spanish America, and the Latinix community of the United States. By the time of Moderation, students are expected to have a solid grasp of the language, as well as a familiarity with reading and writing about literary texts. After Moderation, students concentrate on particular aspects of Hispanic culture by taking specialized seminars that focus on certain geographic regions, time periods, or cultural manifestations. Spanish Studies majors are strongly encouraged to spend a semester abroad in a Spanish-speaking country. We will help you to choose the appropriate program and location and guide you through the application process.
