College of Charleston - Hispanic Studies

Department of Hispanic Studies at the College of Charleston

The College of Charleston’s Department of Hispanic Studies is one of the largest and most comprehensive undergraduate programs in the southeast at a university committed to preparing our students for the language demands of a world made increasingly smaller by technology, the global economy and immigration. Regardless of their career choices, our graduates find that proficiency in Spanish and/or Portuguese means increased opportunities, and in turn greater income-earning potential. Consequenty, Hispanic Studies enjoys approximately 150 Spanish majors and 300 minors (Spanish and Linguistics), numbers that have grown yearly.

“Of Souls, Skins and Leopard Prints: Queer and Animal Creations of Cubanbeings”

Wednesday, April 10, 2019
5:00 pm
