The Spanish program at Oregon State University provides students with the opportunity to learn about and through the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Spanish-speaking world, both locally and globally. 

Our classes are student-centered and proficiency-based, and they prepare students to live bilingually both in their personal and professional lives. 

At the heart of our program lie ACTFL’s five C’s of language learning: Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities. Our faculty come from a wide variety of backgrounds, and each one brings a unique perspective to the process of language-learning.

In addition to the face-to-face and hybrid classes we offer on our Corvallis campus, students can take advantage of a wide range of offerings on our Ecampus, and they can also participate in study abroad programs in places like Mexico, Ecuador, Spain, Argentina and many others. For more information about study abroad opportunities visit the Office of Global Opportunities at Oregon State.
