Eric Massey ’14 Senior Profile: Hispanic Studies

Massey.EI chose to major in Hispanic Studies because I enjoyed learning Spanish and wanted to make a career out of it. Throughout my time at W&M as a Hispanic Studies major I’ve learned how to look at the world from the perspective of a variety of different groups spanning from that of nobles in Medieval Hispanic Literature to the Hispanic community in the United States today in Librotraficantes.

The memorable experiences I’ve had in the program include learning how to read medieval manuscripts with relative ease after thinking I wouldn’t be able to at first sight, and living with a large and friendly family while I studied abroad in Cádiz.

My plans for the future include studying abroad one more time this summer in Santiago de Compostela , earning a Master’s in education, and eventually becoming a Spanish teacher.
