About the Program

Learn more about the Spanish program.

At Siena Heights University you will learn to speak fluently in Spanish. You will apply your speaking, reading, writing and listening skills to the study of Latino history, culture and literature. We believe that language and culture are inseparable. For that reason, as part of the Spanish major, you spend a semester in a Spanish-speaking country.

Spanish majors at Siena understand cultural diversity and are able to apply that knowledge to a variety of jobs and situations. We live in a globalized world that requires competent, purposeful and ethical individuals to work within multiple cultures. Our students are able to communicate well between cultures in the target language.

Most importantly, studying Spanish at Siena is fun! You have the opportunity to study abroad, meet new people, and have new experiences. Learn about our new Costa Rica Experience! Spanish majors have the opportunity to earn money as Spanish tutors, volunteer as translators and interpreters, and be involved in the Latino community.
