Overview

Our students take full advantage of the Spanish language and cultural influence felt in the Tampa Bay area. There is also ample opportunity to practice the language on campus, since Spanish native speakers come to Eckerd to seek a degree or to study English at our ELS Center. A tutoring program also offers support outside the classroom. Many of our students polish their language and culture skills by studying in a Spanish-speaking country for a semester or a year through ISEP or CIEE; by completing a semester of study at our own Latin American Study Center in Peru; or by taking a Spring Break service-learning trip or a language immersion winter term course.

A degree in Spanish from Eckerd provides excellent preparation for graduate study, while also making students more employable and ready to participate in our increasingly global society. Many of our majors typically combine their study of Spanish with other fields of study. The importance of the study of Spanish is evident in the diverse career paths chosen by our majors and minors.
