Why Choose Spanish at WIU?

Our classes are small; the upper division ones are often smaller than 20 students. You will not be a nameless face in the crowd; you and your professors will get to know each other.

You can also get acquainted with other students who share similar interests in our language clubs. They present opportunities for informal activities such as movies, cooking, and participation in the university’s International Bazaar.

We offer a generous credit for advanced placement, a flexible range of classes to take, and ample opportunity for immersion study experiences abroad.
