The goals of the Spanish division are to help students achieve: (1) an understanding and command of the linguistic structures of the Spanish language that enable them to use it correctly and fluently in speech and in writing; 2) an awareness and appreciation of the diverse cultures of the Spanish-speaking world; 3) a familiarity with the literary and cultural production of Spain, Latin America, and its diasporas, and the ability to critically analyze it. Spanish majors are prepared for graduate study in Spanish and, with an appropriate second major, different career possibilities including business, education, government, international relations, and diplomacy. The Spanish division strongly encourages students to participate in study abroad programs. We currently send students to Salamanca, Spain, through an affiliate program with AIFS. There are also short-term study abroad programs offered to Guatemala and Cordoba, Spain.
