The Spanish program at Elon offers many opportunities for students. Besides offering a major and minor, we offer multiple study abroad opportunities, an honor society and a rigorous senior colloquium.

About

As a Spanish major in Elon’s Department of World Languages and Cultures, you can play an important role in bridging the gaps among these diverse groups and their cultures while becoming proficient in a second language, a skill of value to any career and vital to informed global citizenship. Spanish and a second major in another field will give you a competitive advantage in the workplace. You also can minor in Spanish to complement your major field of study or complete the requirements for teacher licensure.

Course offerings are balanced by combining literary, cultural and linguistic study. Professors emphasize practical use of the language, and they help students develop proficiency in six areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing, critical thinking, and cultural competency. Topic-based course offerings contribute to develop literary, cultural and linguistic analysis skills. All classes, including beginning-level courses, are taught in Spanish. Students also use audio, video, Skype and similar technologies. You can also complete an internship or a service experience in which you use your language and intercultural skills. Your work toward the major will include a semester of study in a Spanish-speaking country and your Elon career will culminate in the senior capstone course.
