Timothy Benson, Lecturer

The Spanish program introduces students to the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. The various courses offered enable students to lay the groundwork for fluency in Spanish and to enhance practical language skills for specific career purposes.

Students may choose either the Liberal Arts Minor or the Secondary Education Minor. Students may elect to submit for approval a proposal for a Spanish Studies Individually Designed Major in conjunction with UW-Superior’s cooperating institution in San Josť, Costa Rica.

The Spanish program seeks to educate students to become more effective participants in the global community by promoting international and ethnic awareness and sensitivity to other cultures.

Normally, a student must complete Spanish 300 at UW-Superior before participating in a Spanish Study Abroad program.
