Overview

Spanish majors at Saint Joseph's University focus their studies on the languages, literatures and cultures of Spain and Latin America, as well as Spanish linguistics, learning about all corners of the Spanish-speaking world. 

Small class sizes allow for the individual attention necessary in learning a new language, and learning resources such as the language lab and multimedia classrooms provide the support students need to succeed.
