Spanish Lynk: Classroom to Career

Connections across languages and cultures

In addition to off-campus learning such as Community-Based Learning, study abroad, internships, and volunteering, students also work on e-portfolios, attend panels with alumnae, apply to graduate school in order to prepare for their future paths.  Students emerge from our programs with a more informed perspective and range of opportunities that have changed and vitally influenced their career and life directions.
