Spanish and Hispanic Studies


Plaza de España, Seville

Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.

With some planning, Spanish and Hispanic Studies majors can travel abroad and still graduate on time. While the Center for Global Education offers abroad programs on six continents, faculty from the Spanish and Hispanic Studies department sponsor programs in Costa Rica and Seville, Spain.

Costa Rica

HWS has established a partnership with Academic Programs International (API), which will deliver the academic program and oversee all logistical arrangements, from orientation to excursions to homestay and cultural programming.

Seville, Spain

The Seville program, offered through Hobart and William Smith Colleges' affiliation with Academic Programs International (API), is based at the University of Seville. Students will take courses both at the University and the API Center and will reside in homestays arranged by API. A series of excursions and cultural programming will complement the academic program.



At HWS, students have the freedom to study at any of our Global Education destinations.

The featured abroad programs are recommended by the Spanish and Hispanic Studies department based on content of the curricula.
