Spanish is the fastest growing language in our hemisphere, with more than 52 million Spanish speakers in the United States alone.

At Bryn Mawr College, students are challenged to go beyond traditional language instruction and gain a greater understanding of the richness and diversity of Hispanic culture and its profound global impact.

Our courses draw upon an abundant and complex cultural legacy that includes Spanish, Latin American and Latino authors, thinkers, filmmakers, literary genres, political figures and movements. They provide solid preparation and practice in spoken and written Spanish, supplemented with cultural exploration. Most courses are taught exclusively in Spanish.
