Each spring semester, the Spanish and Portuguese Department offers a 17-credit immersion program in Latin American Studies and Spanish (LASS). The program combines 9 credit hours of intensive Spanish language with 8 credit hours of study focusing on geography, history, and culture in Latin America and a 21-day trip to a Spanish-speaking country.

Successful completion of the program is awarded with a certificate of participation and a waiver of the General Education World Society requirement.

Applications for LASS are received between April and November for the following spring. For information, please visit the program's web site or contact Dr. Montserrat Piera (215-204-8285).
