Spanish Course Descriptions

Offerings in Spanish develop language proficiency and cultural awareness through collaborative classes where effective communication is the primary goal. Advanced courses in Spanish contribute to knowledge about the Spanish-speaking world and the history and structure of the Spanish language and its literature. Since all advanced courses are taught in the language using authentic texts, these courses allow students to read and respond in writing to Spanish-language authors in Spanish. Students also interact in Spanish to promote language competence approaching that of native speakers.
