Spanish Language Study

The Andes Mountains

Spanish/Latin American faculty offer a variety of courses focusing on the Spanish language and Latin American area studies from a variety of disciplines. Although most of the courses in the program are taught in Spanish, area studies courses can include those taught in English in other teaching units such as the School of International Service, History, Anthropology and Sociology. The program takes advantage of the University's Washington location through a Spanish-language internship (Proyecto Amistad), as well as field trips, guest lecturers and the wide range of research opportunities in the area. A Certificate in Spanish Translation can be incorporated in our majors, or be taken separately.
