Welcome to Hollins University Spanish Department!
Turner Hall, Hollins University
Are you interested in learning Spanish, or in improving your Spanish-language skills? Would you like to study the culture, literature, and even the business practices of the Hispanic sector of the global community? Does the prospect of studying in Mexico, Argentina, or Spain appear on your wish list? Do you thrive in small classes, in a challenging but family-like atmosphere? If your answer to these questions is yes, you should consider Hollins. The curriculum: Hollins offers a wide variety of courses in Spanish. In addition to classes on Hispanic literatures, we teach Business Spanish, Advanced Conversation and Composition, Advanced Grammar, Cultures and Civilizations of Spain and Latin America, Special Topics courses, and a Senior Seminar. Students in beginning, intermediate, and conversation/composition classes meet once a week for an hour in small groups with our language assistant for additional practice in conversational Spanish. The assistant also offers a language table once a week during lunch that is open to the Hollins community.
