This program offers a variety of Spanish classes and facilities to meet your interests and needs. Classes are small, generally fewer than 30 students, who learn through structured activities, classroom participation, and multimedia presentations. Students are able to function in a Spanish-speaking environment by the end of their first year and can achieve fluency in both spoken and written Spanish after three years of study. Emphasis is placed on the communication skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, and on exposure to elements of the Spanish and Latin American cultures. Students majoring in Spanish spend a year of study on exchange at a Spanish-speaking university. The ability to communicate in a different language broadens an individual’s appreciation of other cultures and increases opportunities in the job market. Spanish may also be taken as a minor or as a double major with business, politics, sociology, biology, geology or another language.
