The Spanish program offers basic courses of Spanish language (SPN 101, 102, 203, and 204) and upper level courses about advanced grammar, conversation and composition, as well as courses on culture, literature, films, and other topics (300 and 400 levels).
Our section has qualified professors from Latin America, Europe, and the US. Thank to this diversity students are exposed to different dialectal accents and vocabulary, as well as to first hand experiences from different regions.
Nowadays, Spanish is a very important language in the US. For this reason, students with a degree in Spanish will have better opportunities for jobs and they are ready for interaction with international people from many different countries.
