Tyler “Bear” Anthony
Ph.D. student, Vanderbilt University

“Going into the Spanish Master’s Degree program with BGSU was one of the best decisions I have made in my academic career. Not only was I able to spend another year abroad in Spain and make new connections and strengthen former ones, but I also developed strong bonds with faculty on campus. Their experiences and teaching styles have helped me to be more prepared in my current Doctoral Program and I am finding myself constantly referring back to old notes from my BGSU Spanish courses. Their guidance while writing my Master’s Thesis allowed me to pursue something I am passionate about in a fun and academic way while also preparing me for the next step at the doctoral level. I am grateful for my time spent in this Master’s Program and for the faculty that deepened my passion for the language and culture!”

"El programa me brindó oportunidades fenomenales. Pude estudiar en España, aprender sobre una multitud de temas hispánicos y escribir una tesis sobre la evaluación de la competencia oral en las clases de lenguas extranjeras. Estoy sinceramente agradecida por la ayuda y el apoyo del maravilloso profesorado que me inspiró a lograr mis metas académicas."
