Overview

In today’s global economy, the ability to speak Spanish is an extremely valuable skill, both in the United States and abroad: Spanish is spoken in 28 countries by over 740 million people, and the US in now the second largest Spanish-speaking country in the world.  

In this program, you will learn to effectively speak, read and write in Spanish, with courses in conversation, grammar, reading comprehension, culture and literature.  Our curriculum will also help you develop what employers call desirable “soft skills” such as empathy, creativity, mental flexibility, critical thinking, and intercultural communication strategies. 

To further advance your Spanish language and cultural competence and to prepare for a teaching career either in the US or abroad, you can take advantage of our summer-, semester-, and year-long study abroad opportunities throughout Spain and Latin America.
