Occidental’s Spanish program provides you with an analytical grasp of the traditions and complexities of the Spanish-speaking world.
The rich cultural and literary expressions of Spain and Latin America are explored in a classroom environment that immerses you in intensive language use and builds strong conversational skills. In addition to extensive study abroad options, our location in Los Angeles provides endless opportunities for you to use Spanish interactively. We also offer a linguistics track within the Spanish major. Many Spanish majors have gone on to participate in a program sponsored by the Spanish government in which young U.S. college graduates assist teachers in Spain with teaching English.
