SPANISH

YOUR 
COMPETITIVE
EDGE.

The Spanish language student pursuing the major or the minor has access to a wide range of courses designed to build a solid foundation in the language, perfect speaking and compositional skills, teach literature in tandem with the culture of both Spain and Hispanoamerica, focus on special topics in Latino studies, cinema, women authors, or literary genres, and culminate in a senior capstone course, typically dealing with an eminent writer, such as Cervantes or García Márquez. The senior portfolio incorporates assessment of writing and speaking proficiency with samples of student work toward the major. All students are encouraged to participate in the program´s on-campus cultural activities and to study abroad for a summer or semester in an approved overseas program to experience language immersion and explore in situ a Hispanic culture. The foreign language placement test is required before any student registers for a first course in the program.
