Specialization in Inter-University Spanish Language and Hispanic Cultures

Students must complete 12 credits at one of our Spanish-speaking partner institutions abroad during one semester. The 12 credits may be taken in language, culture and/or literature as appropriate to the student's level of proficiency and upon recommendation of student's academic advisor at CCSU. These credits may apply to the core requirements of the major.

Note: Students of this specialization are strongly encouraged to complete their study abroad component during their sophomore year.
