About this program

Bachelor of Arts in Spanish

At Hanover, the study of a modern language is rooted in activities and readings that will help you see the world with the perspective of another culture. You'll learn to use language as a tool that connects cultures, business and individuals.

Instead of only learning good spelling and grammar, you'll expand your cultural awareness through the study of civilization, culture, and literature and become a global citizen. Since languages are best learned through immersion, all classes are taught entirely in Spanish. You are encouraged to seize the many opportunities to interact in Spanish in the community and abroad.
