The Spanish major/minor program prepares students to be proficient in Spanish and the cultures of Spanish speaking populations. We teach to listen, speak, read, write, and analyze the language while providing college level knowledge of its literature and the arts. Our classes foster transcultural understanding as the basis for mutual respect, global harmony, and social justice. Many Spanish students double major; Business Administration, Accounting, Natural Sciences, Psychology, Sociology, Theology, Communication Studies, and English are common choices.
Our outstanding students are hired by the professors as teaching and research assistants, or work at our Language Center. They often join the Spanish Honor Society (Iota Rho of Sigma Delta Pi) and publish their research essays and creative works in the journal La Voz edited by the vibrant Spanish Club.
