Academic Opportunities

In addition to Independent Studies, Research Assistantships, and in select cases the option to take graduate courses for undergraduate credit, there are many opportunities for extracurricular enrichment activities in the department, including a conversation table, lectures, film screenings, and the Spanish club. Information on events and on the Spanish club can be found on the Romance Languages and Literatures department website.

Experiential Learning

Majors in the Romance Languages have often participated in internships, serving as tutors in the Buffalo schools or working with international organizations in the region. More opportunities are in development. Students can collaborate with faculty on their research projects as well.

Study Abroad

Students are strongly encouraged to study in Spanish-speaking countries, ideally for an academic year or a semester. Study abroad programs sponsored by SUNY campuses, such as UB’s summer program in Salamanca, programs elsewhere in Spain, or others in Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico, or Puerto Rico, are open to UB Spanish students. Credits earned on those programs can transfer to UB. Detailed information is available on the Study Abroad website. Majors and minors may complete up to half their required Spanish courses, and can satisfy general education requirements as well, via approved study abroad programs. The Department requires a mandatory advisement session with a Spanish faculty adviser to determine what courses will count toward the major, as well as a follow-up advisement session after the student returns. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Department offers scholarships to help students finance their study abroad.

Extracurricular Activities

There are many opportunities to participate in out-of-class enrichment activities through the department, including a conversation table, lectures, film screenings, and the Spanish club. Information on events and on the Spanish club can be found on the department's website.

Honors and Awards

Sigma Delta Pi, the national Spanish honor society, has a chapter at UB. Students are initiated once a year.

Departmental Honors are awarded to graduating students on the basis of their GPA.
