Spanish is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world and one of the official languages of the United Nations and the European Union. Because Spanish is becoming more widely used in the United States, having the ability to speak and understand the language will provide you with many professional opportunities and prove helpful in your daily life.

Participate in one of DePaul’s Study Abroad programs in Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico or Spain in order to grow linguistically and expand your cultural understanding of Spanish-speaking societies.
