Why get a Spanish Minor?
The Department of Foreign Language and Literature offers major and minor programs of study in Spanish as well as supporting course work for the College's general education program and majors in International Business, International Studies, and Transnational Studies. The program of the Department develop speaking, reading, writing, and listening proficiency in Spanish at the beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels as well as an appreciation of the literature and cultures of the people who speak this language.
In addition to the practical application of such acquired skills and knowledge to professional fields such as education, business, and science, it is believed that students will gain insight into their own language and culture through firsthand knowledge of another people's means of expression and cultural heritage.
The Spanish minor consists of 21 hours of study beyond the elementary level. There are four main requirements for the minor: grammar, conversation, civilization, and literature. Students need to take three elective courses (9 credits.)
