The Spanish program at Stetson University combines opportunities for personal enrichment with the practical skills required in this age of globalization.
Students enjoy learning about a foreign culture while perfecting their language skills. For that reason, it is expected that all language majors will participate in at least one semester of the study abroad program. Students can also work on certification to teach at the K-12 level as part of their major.
Majors can take part in Spanish language conversation tables and engage in community service or internships in nearby Mexican-American communities.
Academics and Research
All students conduct a senior research project under the mentorship of a faculty member.
Facilities and opportunities
The Spanish department is housed in Sampson Hall. All classes are in smart classrooms and technology is widely used in and outside of class. The multimedia language laboratory is readily available for individual or group work. Students also have access to native-speaking tutors.
Awards and Recognition
Courses are taught by Fred Butler, Carmen Capitano, Ana Eire, Robert Sitler and Nancy Vosburg.
One of the ways Stetson University fosters excellence in undergraduate programs is through the Stetson Undergraduate Research Experience. Each year undergraduate scholars are selected in a university-wide competition for grants to work with a faculty mentor on a summer research project.
