The focus of the Heritage Spanish major is to help Spanish speakers who communicate effectively in their home or community language, or who have lived in a Spanish-speaking country for an extended period of time, to more fully develop their Spanish language competency.


Studying Heritage Spanish offers native Spanish speakers, who would largely be considered bilingual, to gain greater mastery of the language both in oral and written form.

Why this program 

At CWU, the Heritage Spanish major is specifically designed for students who have a personal, familial, or community connection to Spanish to develop Spanish language proficiency. It provides students with an opportunity to build upon their existing linguistic and cultural knowledge.
