Modern Languages

Modern Languages - Spanish Option

The Spanish concentration provides a broad liberal arts education for students who are interested in developing a proficiency in the Spanish language, a broad knowledge of the cultural and literary heritage of Spanish and Latin American civilization, and a basic insight into the function of verbal symbols in the process of human thought. This major provides students with sufficient preparation for a career in language teaching and bilingual education and for business and social service careers requiring a command of the Spanish language. Students may combine the Spanish concentration with other supporting studies and may tailor their undergraduate program to meet their individual career objectives.

The major in Modern Languages - Spanish consists of 36-45 credits (with at least 15 credits at the 300 level or above) and normally will include 18 credits in language courses, 15 credits in literature courses, and three credits in cultural courses.    

Additional coursework beyond the prescribed courses may be elected from the Spanish offerings to a maximum of 45 credits.
