Community Engagement Practicums

Our students can participate in community engagement projects with local Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking communities under the supervision of our faculty and local organizations.

When participating in a community engagement project, students can earn between 1 and 3 practicum credits (1 credit per every 3 hours worked per week). These credits will count towards the total number of credits needed for graduation, but may not fulfill any requirement of the major. Students need to sign a contract with the organizaton and be in touch with a faculty sponsor in order to receive practicum credit  (SPAN 398 / PORT 398). 


There are no available opportunities at this time. You may get in touch with one of our faculty to learn about any forthcoming projects:
