Hispanic Studies 300. Spanish Practicum Internship

In collaboration with the The Filene Center for Academic Advising and Career Services, majors and minors in Hispanic studies are placed in agencies in Massachusetts or Rhode Island that need Spanish-speaking volunteers. Students will be able to increase their fluency in Spanish through personal and continued contacts with the language and, at the same time, assist the Hispanic community in programs related to foster care, refugees, hospitalized children and adolescents, battered women and their children, legal advocacy, rape crisis, AIDS, substance abuse, runaways, family emergency shelter and in after-school programs, etc. Readings and class discussion will focus on the literatures, histories and cultures of Latinos in the U.S. and other issues pertaining to this community.
