Curriculum for a Major in Spanish

 

The major in Spanish seeks to help prepare students to live in a complex, technological, and diverse world by introducing them to varying perspectives offered by a thorough study of Spanish and Latin American literature, the Spanish language, and Spanish for the professions. Through these perspectives, sociological and personal barriers may be broken down, and the possibilities as well as the paradoxes of human existence may be better understood.
