Spanish Concentration

The Spanish language and Spanish-speaking peoples are a vital part of our local and global communities.

As a Mason Spanish student, you will study the Spanish language in the context of these communities. You become proficient in speaking, reading, and writing Spanish. You will also learn about Latin American, Latino and Spanish language practices, literatures, histories, and cultures.

You participate in a large local community of Spanish speakers at the university and in Northern Virginia. There are many opportunities to get to know speakers of Spanish through classes, student organizations, and community activism. 

You will have access to a wide number of Spanish language arts programs in the area, including Teatro de la Luna in Arlington County and Teatro Gala in Washington, D.C.


All students have opportunities for research, global-engagement, public service, and career preparation.
