Student Opportunities

After declaring your Spanish major, it is critical that you maintain regular contact with your advisor, your professors, and with the department office staff, all of whom are tremendous resources for you and your college experience.  There are scholarships, internships, and new sources of financial aid for which you may qualify. To find out what is available – and the eligibility requirements – contact the department office.  Part-time jobs, internships, service learning and volunteering will play an integral part in your preparation for the future.

There is no better way to broaden your global vision, expand your mental horizons and improve your language skills than studying abroad in a country where your language of study is spoken.   Our students of Spanish and Portuguese are fortunate to have access to multiple College of Charleston study abroad opportunities. 

Here on campus, we sponsor a Spanish House (residence) for qualifying students of Spanish, and we afford numerous extracurricular activities that include the Portuguese and Spanish Clubs, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, and the Hispanic Latino Club.  The Spanish Club hosts a Tertulia, providing an occasion for students and professors to meet and practice Spanish.  ¡Nos vemos!

There are more than 150 clubs and organizations for you to consider, many of which can help you hone your leadership skills, and connect you with students who share your interests.
