The Department strongly recommends that all majors include a period of study in a Spanish or Portuguese-speaking country in the course of their undergraduate education. Please visit Study Abroad for more information.

Although the 4-year graduation guarantee does not apply to those who study abroad, it is still entirely possible to go abroad for a semester or a year and graduate in 4 years.

For International Spanish for the Professions Majors, formal admission to the major is required before departure.

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Sponsors Summer Global Seminars in Argentina, Brazil and Spain.
