Senior Profile: Elena Gaffney (Hispanic Studies ’19)

My experience as a Hispanic Studies major at William and Mary has been incredible, and I am so grateful to have taken the courses and had the professors that I believe make this program so special. I have been able to take courses on topics like Francoism in Spain, Latina filmmakers, Arizona’s Ethnic Studies Ban, and Spanish linguistics. I have also had the opportunity to study abroad twice through the Hispanic Studies program in Spain and Guatemala.

The Hispanic Studies department is truly an amazing department full of dedicated professors and students who prioritize social justice and cultural awareness and I am so proud to have been a major in this area. I am really excited to continue to use the skills in Spanish language and cultural studies in my post-grad career.
