    The Spanish program at Hamline introduces students to the rich language and cultures of Spain and Latin America. Our courses are interactive, challenging and fun.  

    Students develop their speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills every step of the way, from Beginning Spanish to the most advanced literature and culture courses. Students who study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country achieve even greater fluency and cultural understanding, tremendous advantages both in the classroom and beyond.

    Because the curriculum is flexible, many of our students easily double major -- favorite pairings include biology, global studies, business, legal studies, education, and Latin American Studies.  

    Spanish majors are in demand locally and nationally and our graduates have gone on to rewarding careers in government, social services, business, education, medicine, and the law.
