Baker Spanish students have a multitude of opportunities for involvement in and out of the classroom. Spanish Club is the perfect place to start, allowing students to immerse themselves in the language in a variety of ways, on and off campus.
Each Wednesday during the academic year, Spanish-speaking students and faculty are invited to gather at “la mesa española” in the university dining hall to eat and speak Spanish. Recognizing that practice is essential in acquiring fluency in a world language, students at all levels are encouraged to take part in the casual conversation, allowing you to gain knowledge through listening and conversing in Spanish. For those without meal plans, lunch is provided by the Department of Humanities.
Spanish Film Series
Each semester, the Department of Humanities presents series of international films. At least one film in each language offered at Baker—French, German, Spanish—is shown per semester. Spanish-language films are a way to explore the culture and language of the modern Spanish-speaking world.
