About

Globalization is part of the reality of the twenty-first century and speaking Spanish has almost become a necessity. Thus, the study of the Spanish language and its culture is quite practical. Given the Hispanic presence in the United States and the proximity of our Spanish-speaking neighbors in Latin America, proficiency in Spanish is increasingly advantageous and even necessary for numerous professions and careers. The Spanish area faculty members recognize the need to provide today's students with a broad education and perspective.
