Student in class

Our undergraduate program in Spanish is designed to allow students to choose from an array of courses spanning the diverse areas of literature, linguistics, cultural studies, and the geographic areas of Spain and the Spanish-speaking Americas, as well as a constantly evolving set of special topics courses.

By building their individual program according to their own passions and interests, students minoring or majoring in Spanish graduate with not only a greater appreciation for and knowledge of Hispanic literature, culture, and linguistics, but also a more nuanced understanding of their own countries, communities, and culture.

To achieve these outcomes, our curriculum is designed to lead students through the following sequence:

  1. from basic competence in written and spoken Spanish,
  2. through greater understanding of the structure of the language and literary and cultural achievements of the Spanish-speaking world,
  3. to career preparation and independent research and study.

Spanish faculty members strive to maintain a program with a strong balance between topics of study and Spanish-speaking regions of the world. Our faculty expertise and course offerings span the academic areas of linguistics, literature, cultural studies, and special topics, and the geographic areas of Spain and the Spanish-speaking Americas.
