The Spanish major at Seton Hill offers a wide range of courses in the language, literatures and cultures of the twenty Spanish-speaking countries in Europe, Latin America and Africa.

The Seton Hill Spanish program embraces ACTFL's Oral Proficiency Standards. Our courses are designed to move students along the proficiency continuum from Novice and Intermediate levels to Advanced and Superior levels of communicative and intercultural competence.

Courses in language, civilization and literature are complemented with offerings in cinema and popular culture to foster critical thinking and linguistic development. In addition, students at Seton Hill study in what has proven to be the best environment for effective language learning: upper-level classes of between 10 and 20 students.

Students who are interested in becoming Spanish teachers can fulfill their educational requirements for teaching certification at the K - 12 level while earning their degree in Spanish at Seton Hill.

Students interested in the health sciences can choose to pursue a minor in Medical Spanish. 

Spanish Club

Spanish Club offers exciting cultural opportunities each semester. Activities include film showings, authentic meals, conversational tables and service opportunities. 

Spanish is also available as a minor, which provides students with competency in the language and culture that they can use in other fields of specialization, including medical Spanish.
