Bachelor of Arts in Spanish

A degree in Spanish provides IU South Bend students with the tools to become a true international citizen in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual global community. The Spanish Program promotes proficiency in the Spanish language, knowledge of Spanish and Latin American cultures and literatures, and the students' active engagement in cultural and linguistic exchanges.

Academic Advising
