The Spanish program at the Reed College will help students to acquire substantial expertise in the literary and cultural traditions of the Spanish-speaking countries of Latin America and Spain and achieve a high level of fluency in spoken and written Spanish.


The Spanish program at the Reed College will ocus on speaking, reading writing, and grammar, as well as cultural context. In the second year, emphasis on composition increases and readings encompass a variety of genres. The third-year courses involve advanced review of the more challenging grammatical structures in conjunction with an investigation of selected topics in Spanish and Latin American culture. All language courses are conducted in Spanish.


The objective of the upper-division courses is an informed study of literary texts and film, grounded in consideration of their artistic, historical, political, and cultural contexts, as well as in questions concerning literary history and theory. 

All literature courses are conducted in Spanish. Majors are encouraged to select courses from a variety of periods in both Peninsular and Latin American literature and to enhance their studies with appropriate coursework in other areas, such as other literatures, humanities, history, art, political science and linguistics.

  • Contemporary Latin American Chronicle
