Oral Proficiency Interview

An Oral Proficiency Interview (OPI) is required of all Spanish majors. This must be taken and passed at least one quarter prior to graduation. For more information contact the Modern Languages Department (Gordy 283).

Education Abroad

Students majoring in Spanish must have a minimum of one quarter of education abroad in a Spanish-speaking country. Students choose a study abroad program in consultation with an academic advisor. The primary goal of education abroad is to increase cultural and linguistic competency. We strongly recommend students study abroad after completing the equivalent of at least one year of language study. Although we encourage students to participate in an Ohio University study abroad program, other alternatives are possible.

In rare cases, the study abroad experience may be waived due to prior experience, financial exigencies, etc. In some cases, an internship with a Spanish-speaking organization may substitute for the education abroad. The Department of Modern Languages must approve all substitutions, which students initiate through petition to their academic advisor.
