The program in Spanish is designed for students interested in Spanish language and Iberian, Latin American, and South American culture, history, and politics. The Spanish faculty offers courses and conducts research on topics that span the Medieval Spain to Contemporary Latin America. Courses are often interdisciplinary and always innovative and engaging. Students are encouraged to enhance their language skills on faculty-led summer study abroad programs to Buenos Aires or Malaga and academic-year exchange programs.
