The first two years of the Spanish Program focus on establishing a practical knowledge base in the language, concentrating on speaking and writing skills. Many students who have studied several years of Spanish in high school are able to test into intermediate or advanced-level courses, providing them with a head start on a degree in Spanish. After Spanish 220 or its equivalent, majors take seven additional courses and minors take five.

Students are encouraged to develop their language skills both here and abroad. The Spanish Program regularly offers courses in international settings through Centre’s recently established program of study in Mérida, México. The program’s faculty is also available to help students gain access to reputable programs abroad at other locations.
