Welcome • ¡Bienvenidos! • Bem-Vindo!

Welcome to the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Miami University! We invite you to explore our website and browse our programs, activities and events. If you'd like more information, feel free to contact us.


In addition to forming strong oral and written communication skills in both Spanish and Portuguese, the department offers a rich undergraduate program that allows students to study the literature, language and cultures of the Hispanic/Latino and Lusophone worlds from a broad range of perspectives: film studies, gender studies, creative writing, history, and others. A variety of opportunities are available to students outside of the classroom as well, such as  faculty-led workshops in Latin America and Spain and service learning initiatives in the surrounding Hispanic communities. Whether in class, in one-on-one collaboration with the faculty, or in the larger community, our students develop the practical skills and cultural preparedness they need for their future as citizens and professionals in a world in which Hispanic/Latino and Lusophone cultures will play an increasingly important role.
