Off-campus Study Options

Majors in Spanish are encouraged to spend time in a Spanish-speaking country. Reed has developed a number of off-campus study programs for students of Spanish language and the literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Students are encouraged to study abroad during their second year. Reed programs include: in Ecuador, the Universidad San Francisco de Quito; in Spain, the Hamilton College Academic Year in Madrid, CIEE Barcelona, with the opportunity to take classes at the University Pompeu Fabra or the University of Barcelona in Barcelona, and CIEE Sevilla, with the opportunity to take courses at the Universidad de Sevilla; in Cuba, Sarah Lawrence College in Cuba, with opportunities for study at the Universidad de la Habana, the Instituto Superior de Artes, and the Fundación del Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano; and in Argentina, CIEE Buenos Aires, with opportunities for study at the Universidad de Buenos Aires, the Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina or the Facultad Latinoamericana de Ciencias Sociales. These programs are not limited to Spanish majors. The department also helps students select study-abroad programs in other parts of Latin America and in Spain on an individual basis. See the “Off-Campus Study” section of this catalog for more information.
