For students with an interest in Spanish and Hispanic Studies, Earlham offers a unique opportunity to combine a variety of learning experiences into one unique program. A significant part of the program takes place outside the classroom, as students submerge themselves in the Hispanic culture – such as living in a Spanish-speaking country or working with a local Latino community in Richmond.
Spanish and Hispanic studies prepares students to pursue careers in many related fields. Our graduates entered graduate school at Harvard, Brandeis, the University of Arizona, University of Texas at Austin, and University of California at Riverside. The language proficiency acquired by our students allowed them to enter international markets and to work for NGOs in Latin America or in organizations like NPR, Democracy Now, and Committee on U.S.-Latin American Relations. Some students have pursued careers in retail, medicine, and law, while others received post baccalaureate fellowships such as Fulbright and Watson.
