The Bachelor of Arts in Spanish focuses on advanced language training, culture and literary studies. Because of the need to compete successfully in our increasingly global environment, a double major (or a minor) in Spanish and another area of study is a popular choice for students considering careers in law, science, political science, international business, economics, history, or education.
The diverse curriculum includes offerings in Peninsular and Latin American literature, Afro-Hispanic literature, film, art, women writers, testimony, and linguistics. The curriculum makes it possible for you to gain a solid, up-to-date background in Spanish studies as well as to broaden your perspective within specific areas of interest.
Our admission criteria are flexible in order to accommodate students coming from different educational systems.
Students who have completed their secondary education in the Spanish system must present their marks from the 3rd and 4th year of ESO as well as 1st and 2nd years of Bachillerato, and they must pass Selectividad. Additionally, we require an official academic English exam (TOEFL or IELTS).
If you have questions about the requirements for any specific educational system, please contact the Office of Admissions at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
