In consultation with your academic advisor and the Director of the International Office, there are numerous programs to choose from including: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru and Spain.
Although studying abroad is not a requirement for the minor, we highly recommend the programs above as well as the IWU Spain Program. Besides consulting with your academic advisor and the Director of the International Office when choosing a program, also consult with the Chair of Hispanic Studies to determine which courses abroad will fulfill the courses for the Hispanic Studies minor.
Study abroad in a country where Spanish is spoken (one semester prior to spring of the junior year or enrollment in Educ 360). Hispanic Studies majors should strive to enroll only in courses taught in Spanish in one of the IWU-affiliated, semester-programs listed below (other programs can also be considered in consultation with the Chair of Hispanic Studies since new programs are created yearly):
Heredia (IFSA Butler): Teacher Education concentration at Universidad Nacional
Gaining an Edge with Education Abroad: Articulating the International Experience - published by NAFSA, the Association of International Educators.
