Centro de Estudios Hispánicos
When the Centro de Estudios Hispánicos first opened 30 years ago, Spanish was primarily studied only by specialists and enthusiasts of the language ans Spanish culture. Today, Spanish is one of the world's most widely spoken languages.
As a result, the current profile of our students is much more varied-in addition to students of language and the humanities, you can also find in our classrooms students from around the world studying business, journalism, political science, medicine and engineering.
This diversity in nationalities and areas of study has broadened the horizons of the Centro de Estudios Hispánicos and enriched the day to day life at our university.
Thanks to these many points of contact, we have been able to develop one of the most important objectives of our programs: to help students become interculturally competent. This is one of the most demanded skills and attributes in our globalized society.
