Hispanic Studies prepares students for graduate work in literary, cultural and international studies, as well as entry into a wide range of professional fields, including business, law, medicine, education and publishing. The Hispanic Studies Major at Wheaton enables students to think critically and creatively about literature and culture, communicate across disciplines and develop a critical awareness of the cultural realities of Spanish speaking communities both in the U.S. and overseas. Thanks to the program’s courses, study abroad and internships, students are able to grow and enhance their perspectives as engaged, sensitive and informed global citizens.
