Spanish, B.A.


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

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.

The primary objectives of the Spanish curriculum include the following:

  1. To encourage students to think critically and to communicate their thoughts effectively by helping them develop the skills necessary to understand and utilize the Spanish language;
  2. To contribute to the liberal arts education of all students by exposing them to the diversity and richness of Spanish and Latin American literature;
  3. To prepare English education majors to become reflective problem solvers capable of teaching Spanish on the middle and secondary levels in a country as ethnically diverse as ours;
  4. To provide students, particularly Spanish majors, with a broad background which will enable them to pursue graduate study; and
  5. To give Spanish and Spanish education majors a knowledge of the basic tools of effective written communication, technology, and an understanding of literature that will enable them to pursue any vocation and function in a diverse and global work world.
