Students currently studying in Cuenca, Ecuador and Mendoza, Argentina through the Dickinson in South America program created a video to wish Dickinsonians at home Happy Holidays.

The students who studied in Málaga, Spain in Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 created a series of videos that explain their life in Málaga and give other students a unique look into their experiences.  

Our large and diverse faculty works closely with students to help them achieve high levels of language proficiency and in-depth knowledge of Hispanic literatures and cultures. These cultural and literary studies cover a vast geographical and linguistic area—our majors read noted Spanish and Latin American writers from the past and present as well as Chicano and Latino authors who write in both Spanish and English. Although Portuguese is not offered as a major, classes may be offered occasionally, and interested students may petition to study the language, culture, and literature of the Luso-Brazilian world through tutorials and independent study.


Students interested in Spanish and Portuguese may also want to learn more about Dickinson's Portuguese & Brazilian-studies minor.
