Let Spanish take you places

That’s not just a metaphor. Studying Spanish at Calvin will greatly expand your career options in any field, from engineering to education. But it will also move you to literal new places. You could hike to Machu Picchu in the Andes Mountains, make friends and forge connections with a host family in Spain, or connect with a local Hispanic community right here in west Michigan.

Experiences like that will stretch and challenge you in astonishing ways. And they’ll also unlock opportunities to reach across cultural and language boundaries.
