The minor in Spanish Language Studies comprises a plan of study under which students achieve spoken and written Spanish language proficiency. In addition, students engage in meaningful activation of Spanish language learning in an authentic context. In addition to studying the Spanish language, students must complete one of the following: a service-learning trip to a Spanish-speaking country (Lasell arranges service in Mexico and Ecuador), a semester of study in a Spanish-speaking country, or a service-learning activity (1-3 credits) in the Hispanic community.
