Undergraduate

SpanishStudents interested in pursuing this degree are advised to stay in close contact with their academic mentor so that they can adjust to changes forthcoming in this program of study. In both the major and minor programs, we provide instruction in the history, arts, literature, and cultures of Spanish and Spanish-speaking countries. Since all courses are taught in Spanish, the student will acquire the oral and written skills to communicate effectively with Spanish speakers. The analysis of philosophy and literature develops critical thinking skills necessary for the professional man/woman. Course placement is determined by the Spanish faculty following careful review of each student's prior instruction and his/her responses to the Foreign Language questionnaire. Courses are so integrated that a student who demonstrates competence in a particular skill may omit one or more basic courses. Majors are prepared for graduate study, for specialized professional training, and for positions demanding foreign language competence in numerous governmental areas and commercial enterprises involving international contacts. Specialized preparation is provided for students wishing to teach and for those in the international business program. All majors and minors are encouraged to study abroad during their junior year or during a summer under one of the programs approved by the division.
