Studying Spanish creates many academic and employment opportunities for students as it is one of the official languages of the United Nations. Offering a certificate, minor and bachelor's degree in Spanish, Webster University knows the importance of academic resources. Spanish students learn from Faculty members who share their foreign language expertise deriving from multiple Spanish-speaking countries beyond Spain and Latin America. The department also employs post-graduate teaching assistants -- native Spanish speakers who connect Webster University students with cultural insights of Spanish-speaking regions.
More Than A Language
Through Webster's partnerships with other universities in Spanish-speaking countries, Spanish majors have one-of-a-kind opportunities to study abroad at Universidad de Cuyo, Mendoza (Argentina), Universidad Autónoma de Guadalajara (México), and Universidad de Oviedo (Spain). Webster also has an exchange program with the Universidad de Cuyo: every fall, one Webster student may spend the whole semester there working as a TA in their English Department.
Spanish Language Tables. Webster's long-standing Language Tables are outside-the-classroom meetings in the university cafeteria which allow students to have casual conversations in their language of study with native-speaking teaching assistant. All levels of speakers are welcome to come to the Language Tables for a stress-free way to practice speaking once a week.
Society of International Languages and Cultures: SILC hosts multiple entertaining and culturally-focused events throughout the school year, and every event is open for anyone to attend.
