The Spanish minor allows students to strengthen their language skills while becoming familiar with a range of Spanish-speaking countries and cultures.
The Spanish minor prepares students to interact with European and Latin American Spanish speakers in professional and travel settings, and provide the social and cultural background that enriches such interactions. Students pursuing the Spanish minor, beyond receiving an advanced education in conversation, grammar and composition, gain the opportunity to engage with classic historical and contemporary artistic works from Spain and Latin America, in the original Spanish. Course topics include Latin-American Women Writers and Postcolonial Dialogues in Hispanic Literature.
Students are encouraged to transfer in credits from a Study Abroad program toward completion of the Spanish minor.
Students will examine a variety of cultural texts including literature, film and music. Literary and other written texts will provide examples of language through time and forms of expression in the different Spanish-speaking regions. Spanish language films will offer an opportunity to hear the language in a variety of voices and to see the cities and landscapes of the Spanish-speaking world.
