Studying another language is an exciting and rewarding experience, not to mention a career path that leads to many opportunities in today's global marketplace. Whether as a major or a minor program, language study increases your marketability and broadens your horizons. Not only will you become proficient in another language, but you will also become sensitized to other cultures (their history, literature, economy, beliefs, etc.).

The Spanish Program offers a variety of courses for all learners and all levels. The introductory and intermediate Spanish courses focus on learning the Spanish language for communication and studying Hispanic cultures for appreciation.

The advanced and graduate Spanish courses continue to refine language use, while exploring literary and cultural topics fundamental to historical and contemporary issues of Spain, the Americas, and the Caribbean.

In all courses and in all locations, classroom activities, such as lecture, group discussion, and pair work, are enhanced by the use of computer technology, music, video, and other techniques that our diverse faculty has acquired through their world experiences.

Through language study you will:

  • Learn and use cross-cultural communication skills
  • Develop a better understanding of other people and different cultures
  • Experience another culture's artistic, literary, socio-political, and historical contributions that have changed and continue to change the world
  • Appreciate and celebrate world diversity
  • Improve your skills in your native language
  • Understand more fully your place, and your native culture's place, on a global scale
