Because today’s world is enriched by diversity, faculty strive to cultivate in each student an understanding and appreciation of other cultures. Respect for self and others must be at the basis of any worthwhile communication. It is in this sense that the Department considers the study of other languages integral to a liberal arts education. All classes foster the skills of communication and understanding in a second language. Listening, speaking, reading, writing, and an exploration of the cultures of the Spanish-speaking world are integrated at each level of study.
