The Department of Hispanic Studies is proud to present its Faculty Focus for February of 2020, Prof. Gustavo Urdaneta.
Mr. Urdaneta was born in Venezuela, where he earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Education in the field of Modern Languages at the University of Zulia “LUZ”. In 2013 he went on to obtain an M.S. in Linguistics and Language teaching from the same institution.
Before coming to the College of Charleston, he spent 17 years teaching foreign language from beginning to advanced levels at a variety of educational institutions, including the University of Zulia, the University of Rafael Urdaneta, and The Citadel.
When not in the classroom, Gustavo enjoys traveling, reading, playing sports, and spending time with his family and friends.
In his own words:
“I love the classroom environment where I can create different learning situations in which each one of my students can have the opportunity to share their knowledge in a free environment that makes them feel inspired by their work.“
