Students in the Spanish major are strongly encouraged to consider a semester study abroad or one/two short term study abroad experiences in a country where Spanish is spoken. This experience will enhance the student’s proficiency in the Spanish language and Hispanic cultures. Bethany College maintains a program at the University of Navarra in Pamplona, Spain. Additionally, the major advisor will work closely with students who plan to study abroad to ensure transfer equivalencies for courses taken at other institutions.
