You’ve heard that adding a Spanish degree will make you more marketable in any job field. That’s certainly true. And as part of the Spanish community at Calvin, you’ll unlock amazing experiences that will enrich all aspects of your life.
Here’s just a glimpse: every Spanish major at Calvin studies abroad. You’ll live with a family in Arequipa, Peru. Take classes in the mountains of Spain at the University of Oviedo. Study language and culture in the tropical climate of Honduras. Your off-campus experience will be led by Calvin professors and you’ll travel with fellow Calvin students.
Back in Michigan, you’ll keep making connections and unlocking opportunities with your mastery of Spanish. Find mentors or an internship in west Grand Rapids’s vibrant local Hispanic community. Sharpen your Spanish speaking skills with a native speaker in a conversation group, celebrate at the annual Hispanic Festival downtown, or worship at Spanish chapel. All of this adds up to a degree that’s practical, interesting, and eye-opening.
