Spanish Program, Department of Romance Languages
The Spanish faculty is committed to making the Spanish language and Hispanic literatures and cultures come alive for our students. Our immediate objective is to help students learn to communicate effectively in Spanish and to appreciate the cultural, linguistic, and ethnic diversity of the Latin American, Spanish, U.S. Latino/a and Hispanic-influenced cultures in general. We therefore offer a wide variety of courses in language, linguistics, literature, and culture that focus on the past and present of Spain, Latin America, and the Hispanic U.S. In addition, we encourage students to study in Spain or Latin America and to experience Hispanic cultures first hand.
