Meet the Faculty

The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures embraces language, literature, and culture. Advanced courses prepare students for graduate study, research, teaching, or the use of foreign languages in professional fields. The department offers two programs for majors – one for native speakers, the other for nonnative speakers. Because native speakers vary in language proficiency, faculty determine whether to classify a student as a native speaker.

Major Requirements

To complete the Spanish Major, eleven (11) courses are required above the 100 level. In addition to the courses at the 200-300 level, students are required to take one (1) course at the 400-level and SPN 497 Senior Capstone Seminar  .

Senior Capstone Seminar in Spanish

SPN 497 Senior Capstone Seminar  is a required 2 credit course that meets once a week during the spring. Spanish students are expected to have an understanding and proficiency in writing, speaking, listening to Spanish. This seminar will test students’ abilities in Spanish.

Study Abroad

Students who participate in the Asturias Program in Spain or the Buenos Aires Program for one semester can count towards the major a maximum of 3 Spanish courses taken abroad. These courses must be pre-approved by the Hispanic Studies Program Director.  Students who participate in the Verano Español can only count 2 courses towards the major.
