Spanish Language and Literature
The Spanish program emphasizes listening, reading, writing, and speaking in all language courses. The department also offers courses in Peninsular and Spanish-American literature. There are study abroad opportunities in Madrid and Cáceres, Spain; Quito, Ecuador; Oaxaca, Mexico; San José, Costa Rica; and Santiago, Chile.
Off-campus experiences are complemented by on-campus study and experiences that maintain or improve a student’s language skills. Opportunities to view Spanish language films, read Spanish publications, converse with native speakers, and participate in language organizations are available and encouraged.
Faculty members meet students inside and outside the classroom, participate in campus activities, and counsel students regarding career choices in foreign service, music, high school and college instruction, science, publishing, international trade, international banking, and other fields.
