Spanish Undergraduate

Hola. We welcome you to Spanish at Illinois, where we offer programs and courses that will improve your Spanish, increase your knowledge of Hispanic cultures and prepare you to thoughtfully engage in a changing world where Spanish is a major language. You can make your experience in Spanish fit your unique interests through our study abroad options, opportunities to work closely with faculty, courses on a wide array of topics, online courses and community service learning. We are committed to guiding students to meaningful learning outcomes through the Spanish major and the Teaching of Spanish major. And by the way, there’s no need to stick to just one language. Our department also offers courses in Basque, Catalan and Portuguese

The world doesn't work in just one language, and neither should you.
Let's talk. Admitted students and their parents, please contact Prof. Ann Abbott at to make an appointment to speak about our program and ask your questions." and a caption that says "Come be an Illinois Spanish student!

Dear prospective/admitted students and parents: Please send an email to Ann Abbott, Director of Undergraduate Studies, at to set up an online meeting. We can address your questions and show you how studying Spanish at Illinois will open you to a world of languages, cultures, perspectives, intellectual challenges and careers.
