Study Abroad

The Department, in collaboration with the Office of Study Abroad, offers opportunities in several foreign study programs. In order to ensure that credit taken abroad will count toward the major, you must see an advisor in the department before you go abroad.

Although we strongly encourage students to take advantage of every opportunity to enhance their linguistic and cultural knowledge, study abroad is not required to complete a Spanish major.
