Students who prefer a specialized experience can choose from concentrations in Latin American Studies, Advanced Language and Literature, International Business (fall) and Biological Science (spring).

“LOVE! The unconditional love that I was shown no matter where I went was one of the most amazing things I have ever experienced. My host families genuinely loved me the second I walked into the door. Because of the language barrier, our communication was a little limited however, every person I came into contact with showed me how much they loved me. This type of love is what we, as Christians, are called to show to everyone. I hope and pray that I may imitate this unconditional love to every person I come into contact with here or wherever I end up!”
