Experiential Tapestries Project: Interweaving Hispanic Studies and Computer Sciences through Languages and Cultures

Minnesota State University, Mankato


The Experiential Tapestries Project develops a curricular pathway that integrates a new Hispanic Studies minor with the Computer Information Technology major and engage students in experiential learning and internships with partners who work in Spanish-speaking contexts. The goal is to create an integrated academic experience within the two disciplines thereby interweaving the cultural and linguistic heritage of Hispanic/Latinoxa communities into the computing sector beginning in southern Minnesota and expanding to a national level.
