The Spanish Language Internship Program aims to connect Spanish-speaking students with partnered community based organizations to provide unique engaged learning opportunities with the Latino community in Washtenaw County and Southwest Detroit area. This engaged learning class is designed to expose students to the study of Latino experiences in the United States, in both a historical and contemporary setting, while also paying particular attention to the effects of Race, Racism, and comparisons of discrimination and inequality, as it occurs in the United States. This course also focuses on the importance of experience and the struggles that many immigrants face upon coming to the United States from Latin American countries. All students are encouraged, in both your written work and in class discussions, to make the effort to be understood, and to speak across disciplinary boundaries. Additionally, every student commits to volunteering three hours, one day per week, for the duration of the semester with one of the programs community based partners. This unique service learning course will provide opportunities for students to engage with the Latino community and challenge students to obtain a deeper understanding of existing social issues and race relations in the United States.

Course Requirements:

Students are required to dedicate 3 hours, one day per week at their site, attend weekly Spanish discussion sessions, and submit weekly reflection journals. Readings are assigned each week for discussion sessions to highlight Race, Racism, Latino history in the United States, Comparisons of discrimination and inequality, along with current political and community issues. Students will have weekly written assignments, write a Race and Autobiography Research paper, a Final Reflection Paper, and deliver a presentation at the end of term. Please email faculty advisor, Teresa Sanchez-Snell, tssnell@umich.edu, for more information.
