Department of Hispanic Studies
At CSB/SJU, you'll find course offerings in Spanish language, as well as in Hispanic literatures, cultures and linguistics.
We also invite you to explore our programs abroad. Spanish accounts for over 54% of all foreign language studies nation-wide and the study abroad programs in the Spanish speaking world are becoming the favorite destination among university students.
On October 3rd, a delegation of Chilean Mapuche indigenous people visited CSBSJU to share their unique culture and stories of survival.
