Faculty and a former student in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese discuss how exposure to those languages and cultures enriches the lives of students.

In this video hear what Spanish professors Rebecca Biron, José Manuel del Pino, and Israel Reyes have to say, and the perspective of Spanish major Elizabeth Markowitz ’16.

“If I can study something where we’re all growing together, that’s what I would want to major in,” Markowitz recalls thinking.


The department also offers a longer version of this video.
