If you are interested in promoting Hispanic Literatures and Cultures then Sigma Delta Pi is for you. Some of the most notable benefits are the opportunity for national awards, grants, and scholarships, which can facilitate study abroad programs and provide money for graduate research grants.
This notice only applies to those who want to declare a major in Spanish.
The Department of Spanish, Italian & Portuguese welcomes the opportunity to have new Spanish majors join our department, but in order to serve our current Spanish majors, we will not assign Spanish major advisors during the Fall 2018 Advising period (Monday, March 26—Friday, April 6).
This workshop will introduce participants to several telecollaborative tools that can be used in language exchange activities. Participants will engage in brief demonstrations of four tools, discuss considerations for selecting and using tools, and have plenty of time to further explore tools of interest, using the Language Lab PC computer stations. Feel free to bring your laptop if you prefer.
The workshop will be conducted by Hope Fitzgerald, Director of the Language Commons (NCH 299).
The Department is delighted to announce that Professor Samuel Amago will be joining the faculty in Fall 2018.
Congratulations are in order for Melanie Turner, a third-year student majoring in Speech Pathology/Audiology and Spanish Linguistics/Philology, who received one of 46 Harrison Undergraduate Research Awards for summer 2018.
