Spanish Program Info and Study Abroad Sessions Planned at SWOSU

The Southwestern Oklahoma State University Spanish program is organizing two informational meetings for Spanish majors and minors and for all students interested in learning about the Spanish program. 

The informational meetings are Tuesday and Thursday, November 3 and 5, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Room 210 of the Campbell Building.

Any SWOSU student is cordially invited to attend, according to Dr. Cynthia Pena. Students are expected to attend only one of the two sessions, and attending at least one of the sessions is mandatory for Spanish majors.

Students can receive up to four credits of Spanish from SWOSU and will be awarded a certificate from Trivium Language Institute upon successful completion of the program.
