¡Bienvenidos al departamento de español de Sewanee! Welcome to the Sewanee Spanish Department. Our department, which has seen rapidly growing demand in recent years, offers a comprehensive program, from beginning language classes to advanced courses in literature and culture.

Our culturally diverse faculty, from the United States, Spain, and Latin America, speak with a variety of accents and dialectical variants and conduct research in a broad range of geographical areas and time periods.

Students will find opportunities to hear and speak Spanish outside the classroom, at the Casa de España y las Américas, weekly Spanish Table, monthly tertulia gatherings, and occasional events such as lectures and film screenings.

The Spanish Department offers a number of study abroad programs. These include Summer in Spain, in which students hike the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route across the north of the country, Semester in Spain, which focuses on Spain and the European Union, and travel to Latin America, in recent years to Cuba and Brazil.

The Spanish Department works closely with other departments and programs whose offerings we complement, such as International and Global Studies, Humanities, and Women and Gender Studies.
