Description

This course provides students with the opportunity to complete a major in Spanish language and Spanish and Latin American cultures while studying their primary undergraduate degree. Students acquire proficiency in the Spanish language (ranging from beginners to advanced levels). Students further develop their understanding of Spanish and Latin American cultures through optional units which explore popular culture and music, Spanish and Latin American literature and film studies, national and cultural identities, discourse analysis, cultural theory, cross-cultural and inter-cultural communication, and translations studies. The Spanish and Latin American studies program also offers study abroad opportunities for students of all levels.
