Choose your own path
Learning Spanish is important to those conducting business in the United States and abroad. Hispanics are the largest minority group in the United States, with the majority being Spanish speakers. By learning Spanish, you’ll be better able to communicate in both business and in everyday life. Latin American countries are our most important trading partners and since Spanish is the most prevalent language in our society after English, you will have many opportunities to speak it, hear it and read it in your own backyard.
Guidance and opportunity
Hiram College believes that immersion is an important part of learning the language. The College invites international students from Spanish-speaking universities to serve as on campus teaching assistants, providing students with opportunities to practice speaking their language of study in real-life, informal situations.
All students majoring in a foreign language are required to study abroad for at least one academic term. Hiram faculty lead trips to Spain regularly, which provide students with opportunities to fully immerse themselves in the language and culture, while living with host families. Students can also take shorter study-abroad trips to Spain and the Dominican Republic during the 3-Week term.
Students can also join the student-run club, LUNA, which hosts discussions, speakers, activities, field trips and social events all related to the Latino culture.
