Spanish

The Department of Modern Languages aims to develop students’ proficiency in Spanish and to foster their understanding and appreciation of the Spanish-speaking world’s diverse literatures and cultures. The Spanish major progresses from intermediate and advanced courses in conversation, grammar and composition through the study of Spanish, Spanish American and U.S. Latino literatures and cultures.

Spanish is the second most widely spoken language in the United States, and one of the top five most spoken languages in the world. A major in the language helps students prepare for a variety of careers including education, communications, business, health and social services, law, politics, travel and tourism.
