Overview

Our students study the world through language, culture, literature, and international travel while gaining proficiency in Spanish through four basic skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. 

The Spanish major at the Westminster College New Wilmington explores language acquisition and the language’s global cultural influences, including Spanish-language literature, art, and customs. Distinctive features of the Modern Languages curriculum at Westminster College include a senior Capstone project, required study abroad, and innovative courses, two of which were developed with the assistance of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the U.S. Department of Education.

There are various opportunities to practice Spanish through travel and experiential learning. For example, our students have traveled to the Dominican Republic to work with doctors and educators alongside Westminster faculty members. Also, the Clemens Scholarship and other funding opportunities are available annually to deserving Spanish students at Westminster College.
