Overview

The Vanderbilt University Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a wide range of courses in the language, literature, and culture of Spain and Spanish America, as well as Portuguese and Catalan.

Key facts about the Spanish and European Studies program

  • In addition to traditional majors and minors, the Department provides opportunities for pursuing independent study and research through the Honors Program in Spanish, which culminates in the writing of a Senior Honors Thesis under the supervision of a faculty mentor.
  • While a language major provides many opportunities for employment on its own, many students in this department combine Spanish or Portuguese with another area of interest. Spanish majors are most often double majors, combining diverse disciplines with their skills and expertise in Spanish. Students interested in Pre-Law, Pre-Med, Medicine, Health and Society, English, Economics, Political Science, Communication Studies, Human and Organizational Development, Education, and other areas frequently find that courses in Spanish, Portuguese, and Catalan complement other areas of work and help them, upon graduating, to begin careers and to find desirable positions.
