The Spanish Program at WSU provides you with a proficiency-oriented curriculum where students are encouraged to use Spanish from day one. We have courses on culture, film, literature, and special purpose areas such as Spanish for Medical, Business, Veterinary Science, Education, and/or Law Enforcement related professions. The program gives you the opportunity to major or minor in Spanish. We encourage our students to pursue international study opportunities in programs all over the world, and accept up to 12 transferred credits depending on the length of the study abroad stay.

We offer a Masters program in Spanish, as well, with some Teaching Assistantship openings every year. We have a semester-long exchange program at the graduate level with the Universidad de las Américas in Puebla, Mexico, with a substantial scholarship providing for all our students costs.
