The Department of Modern Languages currently offers a major as well as a minor in Spanish.
Our courses emphasize linguistic and cultural competence: the ability to communicate to people around the world and here in the US about real issues. Through intensive interaction, and through the study of fiction and non-fiction texts, films and music, our students practice the skills of written and oral communication.
These skills make Spanish majors and minors more marketable, leading to higher rates of employment and higher salaries after graduation. Graduates with a major or minor in Spanish go on to work as doctors, nurses, business people, police officers, teachers, social workers, entrepreneurs and many other professions.
Hosted by the Spanish Department, the Spanish Club strives to inform students about the Spanish language and the cultures of Spanish-speaking countries.
