Hispanic Studies (Spanish)

Major, Minor or Certificate

No matter where you start in our Hispanic Courses program, at Eureka you will benefit from small classes and personalized faculty attention.


Students with any level of Spanish—or none at all!—are encouraged to take Hispanic Studies.  Our introductory course is designed for students who have never studied the language before, and our intermediate courses are a good fit for students who have already taken Spanish in high school and are working toward proficiency.  We also offer advanced coursework for fluent speakers who have grown up using the language and are ready to develop college-level reading and writing skills while learning about the history and literature of Spanish-speaking cultures.


Please contact the Spanish faculty for more information about Hispanic Studies and program placement.


Begin Here.  Go Anywhere.
