Students begin the program in Spanish when they are placed according to their high school records in the appropriate level of instruction. Most begin in Intermediate Spanish, a course designed collaboratively and taught by all Spanish faculty members each fall. Intermediate Spanish introduces students to media, pop culture and film from Latin America and Spain while pushing students to improve their skills in Spanish. Advanced Spanish, generally taken in the second year, provides students a chance to engage in community-based, service learning while they study language and culture. From there, students study literature, culture and film from an array of thematic and genre-based courses. Students also incorporate a semester stint abroad to complete the major, choosing among programs offered by study abroad consortia in Latin America and Spain.
The program features an interdisciplinary approach in all levels of language instruction and welcomes the diversity brought by numerous double majors. The program boasts a high retention rate beyond the College language requirement and graduates more than twenty majors in most years. From the basic requirement through senior-level courses, the Spanish faculty work collaboratively to provide students with creative, engaging experiences in the classroom and community in preparation for the world beyond Wofford.
