About this Program

The Department of Global Languages and Cultures offers a major in Spanish that, in addition to providing a deep understanding of the Spanish language and culture, gives a new perspective on the English language and American culture. The major also prepares students for graduate studies or for careers in teaching, government, business, industry and international organizations.

Program Overview

Spanish majors must spend a semester in a Spanish-speaking country or live for two years in the Spanish House. This residence is under the leadership of two young Spanish or Latin American students.

Internships are available for qualified Spanish majors. Recent internship sites have included the Organization of American States, the Mexican Embassy, the National Association of Cuban American Women, The Maryland Governor’s Commission on Hispanic Affairs, AYUDA and ASPIRA in the nearby Washington, D.C., area and the Servicios Industriales Peñoles in Mexico.
