Students enrolled in these programs can take courses in the IFSA-Butler and IES institutions, as well as enroll in top tier universities.

Important: For students to count courses abroad for their Spanish Major or Minor, they must complete Spanish 301 (or Spanish 302) on campus, and discuss their course selection plan for studying abroad with our Departmental advisors.

Note: The Spanish Department strongly recommends that students take at least one course at a local university during their semester abroad.

The Spanish Department, which requires all majors to study abroad in a Spanish-speaking country, offers an alternative to study off-campus for DACA students.
