A vehicle into the world
Master the Spanish language and immerse yourself in the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.
We’re one of the only universities that requires semester-long study abroad for language majors. Connect with native Spanish speakers in Valencia, Spain; Heredia, Costa Rica; Mérida, Mexico; or Havana, Cuba — to name a few.
- Explore the full list of approved GO programs for Spanish majors
While abroad, you’ll live with host families, do internships in fields such as health and grant-writing, and take courses in a broad array of disciplines. You will also travel and make new, long-lasting friendships.
When you return to Susquehanna, you’ll bring back firsthand knowledge of the cultures you’ve experienced and a grasp of the Spanish language only achieved through immersion!
- Connect with Spanish-speakers on campus! Take courses on the literatures, cultures and histories of Spanish-speaking communities around the world. Study Spanish translation, and get involved with activities outside of the classroom.
- Come to our Latinx Initiative, which promotes the understanding of Latino cultures through exhibits, film, presentations, workshops and speakers.
- Join in conversation tables with Fulbright Fellows from Spain and Latin America.
- Share your interests with a growing number of Susquehanna students interested in Latinx cultures and heritage by joining ALAS (Association of Latinx and American Students).
A host of possibilities
Fluency in this ever-growing language — one of the most widely spoken in the world — will give you an edge in any field. Nearly all our students are double majors, so take your passion for the language and pair it with another major, such as international studies, business, biology, psychology, or add one of our interdisciplinary minors to help you gain a better understanding of important topics in today’s world.
Our graduates become teachers, editors, translators, business entrepreneurs, interpreters and medical professionals. They earn Fulbright grants, work in higher education and public relations, and go on to study Spanish, social work, theater, and education in graduate school.
