Spanish - Minor

The ability to speak, read, write, and understand another language is increasingly valuable in today's world. A minor in Spanish is an excellent complement to virtually any academic major. UW-Superior's Spanish program introduces students to the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. Courses enable students to lay the groundwork for fluency in Spanish and to enhance practical language skills for specific career purposes.

Students may choose either the Spanish minor in Liberal Arts or in Teacher Certification (Ages 6-13 or 10-21). Certification requires study abroad. Students also may work with a faculty member to design their own Spanish Studies major through the Individually Designed Major. This program includes a special study abroad opportunity in conjunction with UW-Superior's cooperating institution in San Jose, Costa Rica.

The Spanish Program is taught by Dr. Jeanette Pucheu who completed her doctoral studies at UC-Davis, and Dr. Timothy Crow, who completed his studies at the University of Virginia. Dr. Pucheu has studied in both Argentina and Spain and Dr. Crow has studied in Costa Rica.
