The Spanish program at Waynesburg University is designed to offer students study in the language along with an immersion experience in two Spanish speaking cities, Sevilla, Spain (Semester in Spain) and San José, Costa Rica (CCCU Best Semester). Students are required to take at least one year of Spanish in college level courses before attending one of the two Study Abroad programs. Students must also take a placement exam before beginning their program at Waynesburg to determine proper placement in the elementary and intermediate language courses. To finish the minor, students must successfully complete 21 hours of Spanish with at least six (6) hours of college level instruction outside of the study abroad credits. Students can choose between the study abroad program in Spain or in Costa Rica according to their needs and interests. Both programs offer service opportunities and also prepare students for service trips to Spanish speaking countries.
The goals of the Spanish program are:
• To teach students to read and speak Spanish
