My experience with the Hispanic Studies program at Spring Hill College took me beyond the language and into the poetic, political, and often complex dynamics of the Hispanic world.

My professors expect me to not only speak the language, but to be able to think critically and appreciate the many different ways the Spanish culture influences society. I’m constantly challenged and encouraged to become a more well-rounded student.
