Through the Department of Modern Languages and Classics, students seeking to study Spanish can pursue a bachelor of arts degree in the language or a degree in romance languages (Spanish and French). Students also have the opportunity to pursue minors in Spanish, French, professional languages and classical studies, as well as earn a certificate of proficiency in Spanish and/or French. The department prepares students to communicate with and understand people from different cultures — modern and ancient — both abroad and at home. Students broaden their cultural and intellectual horizons by developing bilingual or multilingual critical thinking skills as they prepare for careers in commerce, education, government, engineering, science, art, law or service industries. Travel study courses are a key part of the Spanish program, and many direct exchange and other study abroad programs are open to students in destinations around the world, including Spain, France, Canada, Japan, Morocco, Jordan and China.
