Learning Spanish is a solid investment in your future, whatever your career aspirations may be. Our Spanish major emphasizes the unique relationship between culture and language; the acquisition of analytical skills; familiarity with historically important works of literature; and a four-skill (reading, writing, listening and speaking) approach to language proficiency.
Advanced course work includes historically important works of literature and a survey of Iberian and Latin American history and culture. Students will also complete a capstone course their senior year, which includes a proficiency evaluation and a service project with the local Hispanic community.
All Spanish majors are required to study abroad at least one semester, and students will also have many opportunities to interact and practice their Spanish with more advanced or native speakers.
What further distinguishes our program is the fact we offer a Christian college environment that encourages not only academic – but spiritual – growth.
