The Siena Heights Spanish program doesn’t want its students to just “learn” Spanish; students will be able to speak it. In fact, students will start speaking Spanish their very first day of class. The program features a “flipped” classroom format, meaning grammar is no longer taught in the classroom, but as an online lecture.
The project-oriented program focuses in on the liberal arts of communication, technology and creativity.
Another unique aspect of the program is the Costa Rica Experience. Faculty accompany students for a three-month study abroad trip that allows students to immerse themselves not only in the language, but in the culture as well. While taking Spanish classes, students will also be to take courses like marine biology.
Spanish is a skill that can accompany any major and allows our graduates to be independent, cross-cultural and adaptable in their careers.
